My husband and I only had 3 days in New Orleans and so we tried to make it count. We got some tips here on AFAR and tried to hit up all the main attractions. We stayed at La Richelieu hotel in the French Quarter. It was really neat. It has a...

So, the ghost tour with Thomas informed us about the various ghost stories of the old town, like for instance The Casket Girls of the Ursuline Convent (that's where the vampire myths come from), or the Queen of Voodoo, or my favorite story of...

Marigny, New Orleans, LA, USA
Some of the best food in NOLA at a dive bar near the French Market. I recommend the fried chicken.

A Sazerac is composed of whiskey and absinthe, and nowhere sports classier digs for this signature cocktail than the Sazerac Bar of the Roosevelt Hotel in downtown New Orleans, where the low lights flow over heavy wood tables and the big leather...

Sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy, full of caramel and smoky roasted tidbits, the bacon sundae at the Green Goddess is worth all the hype. In addition to unusual desserts, the Green Goddess offers a menu combining Asian, Latino and Creole...

The Garden District was developed in the middle 19th century, and is where the mercantile elite built their in-town estates. Unlike the narrow parcels of the French Quarter or surrounding neighborhoods, house lots here were divided up with just...

Tried the trio:oysters Rockefeller, oysters royale and pepperino oysters. Delicioso! Drinks are not worthy though.

5100 Pontchartrain Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70124, USA
I was embarrassed to say that I lived in New Orleans on and off for about fifteen years but had not been to Metairie Cemetery. I knew a lot about it—I had even taken a New Orleans tour guiding course. I had been to other famous New Orleans...

This Frenchmen Street landmark offers up a steady parade of remarkable local musicians from late afternoon until early morning, with an emphasis on foot-tapping traditional and swing jazz. Musicians play on a low stage against the front window;...

In New York, New Year's Eve revolves around the ball drop in Times Square. In New Orleans, they have their own tradition: At midnight, a giant Fleur de Lis descends and kicks off the Symphony in the Sky fireworks over the Mississippi. Since 2000,...

Here, you'll enjoy authentic Creole and Cajun cuisine made with fresh, local ingredients. Everything on the menu is made from scratch except for the French bread, and even that has a local twist, as the restaurant grills it to give it a nice...

$$$$
Bourbon St. is the most (in)famous street in New Orleans, but I would argue Andrew Higgins Blvd has the most to offer in the Crescent City. A few blocks away from the French Quarter, you can find the National World II Museum and the amazing Cochon...
