Southern Charm

  9 votes

New Orleans is THE party city of the south. I was there on a business trip, but did wander a bit on weekends, and walked down Bourbon Street every evening. It has to be seen to be believed. The humidity hugs you like a warm silk shawl. The beat of the Zydeco music is captivating, and spills out from most shops. The division between old and new, French and English, pleasure and commerce, is stark, almost rude. Everyone is happy, in a party mood.

Favourite spots:
Strolling through the Garden District is a thrill. You don't have to be a student of architecture or horticulture, but it would help. The cemetery tour was interesting, and the street car ride is an education as well.

What's really great:
Cafe du Monde was an experience. It is so central to New Orleans, that it could not be missed, even if you don't eat beigets. Most of all I loved the warm humid air in March. It made my skin feel alive, sensual.

Sights:
Walking on the boardwalk along the Mississippi River was a treat.

Accommodations:
Hotel Ste Marie in the French Quarter was quiet, yet close to everything interesting. The staff was super friendly and accomodating.

Other recommendations:
Preservation Hall. Not to be missed. I would go every night in New Orleans.

We took some high school Lutheran students to New Orleans for their national youth convention a couple of years ago. They really enjoyed working to help clean up the area from Katrina. The New Orleans’ artists, restaurant and hotel personnel were really fun to meet.

Carol.....it's been many years since I was in New Orleans but it should probably be noted that unless it has changed, this is not a place to take the kids!
