My husband and I are going to NOLA July 22-24, the first real vacation without kids since they have been born and that's over 20 years so needless to say we are looking forward to it.
First off, the July date was unavoidable due to scheduling problems. Just about how hot/humid does it get? I'm quite worried about this but what can you do? Maybe afternoon naps?!?
So I've been reading the forums and plan on dining at the following based on recommendations:
Mr. B - BBQ shrimp
El Gato Negro
But there are too many since there is only 3 dinners and 2 or 3 lunches, so please help me pare down. Also which place would be as good if not better for lunch vs dinner. My husband loves seafood and we want local flavors and cuisine. Also since it's July, is there some food we should avoid because it's not as fresh?
Also we plan on stopping at Cafe du Monde for beignets!
Also my only plan is to do a swamp tour, will we see lots in July? And walk around French Quarter, not sure what else to plan. I'm kinda not into museums lately. I was thinking of the French Market.
We are staying at Hotel Mazarin, I hope that's a good lactation and hotel since it is highly recommended here.
Thank you for any advice, recommendations!
