Bit of background- on a month long trip around the US with 6 stops- myself 27 and a friend 32
Early flights… always a good idea when planning- not so fun in practice! Was at JFK airport by 530am. Flight was scary as the plane was only about 70 seats, not a fan of those little planes!
Anyway- got to New Orleans around 10am and caught a taxi to our hotel Hilton New Orleans Riverside and as luck would have it they let us check in! After a quick nap to refresh I caught a taxi to Bourbon Street (could have walked but it was windy and cold!) Taxi driver warned me to not go to streets on the left of Bourbon, to only go right, which was interesting? He also said to try not to look like a tourist- but my constant photo taking always betrays me haha
Had lunch at Willie’s fried chicken- yum!! Really good Southern Fried chicken : ) Got my souvenir shopping done, plenty of options that’s for sure haha
We decided to stay close to hotel for dinner as we were a bit tired (apologies if I’m starting off a bit boring, we’d just spent 11 nights in NYC and been go go go) so we went to the buffet at Harrah’s. Food was quite nice, and the server very attentive. Neither of us eat seafood which New Orleans waiters found hilarious, and a man near us was eating crab legs for about 40 minutes straight!!
