Watch the Sunset
Is there anything more romantic than a sunset? Do as the locals do and watch the sun go down over the Mississippi from Riverview Park, a.k.a. "The Fly." For river views from a different perspective, take the ferry to Algiers Point, where you can stroll along the riverfront path and take in the French Quarter from afar. If you've got wheels, head to Lakeshore Drive, where you can catch the last minutes of daylight over views of Lake Pontchartrain. In the Quarter, there's Woldenberg Park and during warmer months, head to the rooftop at the Roosevelt Hotel (which also has a pool).
