I don't often post, but for the last year I have been reading this forum on a daily basis in preparation for my first trip to New Orleans. One of my favorite things to read is trip reports, and I have found such great information in the details. I am going to share my report in the hopes that someone can benefit from this information when planning their own trip, and maybe help some of you relive other favorite New Orleans memories.
I travelled to New Orleans with my husband. This was the first visit for both of us, but it certainly won't be the last. I think we have both been bitten by the NOLA bug! We were there for 9 nights, from April 20-29, an extended trip. We wanted to experience the city but we also wanted to go to the first weekend of Jazz Fest. We decided to spend a few days seeing the city, eating, drinking, and sightseeing, before getting absorbed in Jazz Fest.
I am going to post my report day by day, as responses to this initial post.
