I am very happy to help if you would like information on visiting my beautiful hometown of New Orleans!!
I like to stay in the French Quarter on a quiet street that is walkable to many attractions, such as the Madison Dupuy. (Du-pwee)
You can then walk to the St Charles Streetcar, the French Market, St. Louis Basilica, the Pontalba Apts., the Jazz Museum, the Aquarium, the Presbytere, the St. Louis Number One Graveyards,
You can easily pick up a tour to see plantations such as Oak Alley or Nottaway, swamp tours with gators, etc.
Also there are great eats in the French Quarter that are walkable: Galatoire's, Bayona, casual- the Gumbo Shop, the Famous Fairmont Hotel's restaurant Domenica, and so much more.
Cafe du Monde is also not to be missed for cafe au lait and beignets.
Take a ride down the St. Charles Ave. on the streetcar, and ogle beautiful mansions, dives, and two universities. Visit Audubon Park or City Park for the live oaks bedecked with Spanish Moss.
Listen to live jazz as you walk down touristy Bourbon St.
Shop for antiques on Royal St.
Magazine St. is a hotspot for all things fun, including the Israeli restaurant Shaya. Many antique shops and regular shops, art galleries, etc. await you!
