Thank you Flokers for all of your wonderful trip reports so far - I've been enjoying them! We are headed down in 4 weeks (for our 4th trip) and I had a couple of questions:
1) What is the easiest way to get to City Park from the FQ? We most want to see the live Oaks; what other free/very low cost attractions do you recommend there?
2) We are very interested in spending more time exploring the Marigny. I was thinking perhaps we would explore this area one morning on the early side, maybe starting with a very light breakfast at Cake Cafe (we're not big breakfast eaters). Would Chartres be a good starting point for this exploration? Where should we walk to get a good feel for this neighborhood? We'll be on foot. Any suggestions for an early in the day drink in this area?
Can't believe the countdown is really on! Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
