No trip to New Orleans would be complete without a visit to Pat O'Briens for a Hurricane. The story goes that in the 1940s, because it was difficult to import scotch during WWII, bar owners were forced to buy large amounts of rum and the...

Preservation Hall is the best spot in the French Quarter for live jazz. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band will take you back to the early 20th century with some of the hottest jazz you ever did hear. A must-see when you're in N'awlins.

After you've had enough of the French Quarter and eaten too many oysters and beignets, jump on the cable car and head over to Audubon Park. It is beautiful any time of year, it great for people watching, and a great place to get away from the...

Wandered aimlessly around the Garden District with my friends pretending we lived there and these were our houses. If only.

We took the St Charles streetcar to New Orleans' famous Garden District, intending to head to the historic Commander's Palace for lunch -- they're well-known for offering 25-cent martinis with your entree. But then we discovered an even better...

Cemeteries can tell us such fascinating stories about the past – where people came from, how they lived and how they died. Nowhere is this more evident than in the above-ground cemeteries throughout New Orleans. Many local tour companies...

Café du Monde is a classic tourist destination that serves top quality food, a combination that's rare in any city. Even if you normally avoid tourist destinations, make an exception for this place. Don't be put off by the long lines and crowded...

I wanted to escape the French Quarter and see more of the city. The Confederacy of Cruisers took us through the Ninth Ward, showed us where the levies broke, and gave us a local's history of Katrina. In the midst of it all we were suddenly stopped...

813 Bienville St, New Orleans, LA 70112, USA
Connected to Arnaud's, this cozy bar place makes you feel like you're transported back in time. It's a great place for conversation, even if just with the bartender. They take their cocktails seriously and you MUST try the souffle potatoes. Yum!

A pleasant surprise while on a Stray Boots tour, the Carousel Bar at the Hotel Monteleone was a very welcomed break from rowdy Bourbon Street. Friendly wait staff will probably recommend the signature Sazerac or something just as potent. Stay and...

The former home of William Faulkner (where he wrote Soldiers' Pay), this tiny bookstore is full of rare and first editions, plus New Orleans literature, and new bestsellers.

623 Frenchmen St, New Orleans, LA 70116, USA
East of the French Quarter is the rickety, raggedy strip of Frenchmen Street, popular with music lovers, hipsters, young and old, the strange, and the strangely normal. We saw some great jazz piano at d.b.a. before listening to this chanteuse at...

On the banks of the Mississippi River lies Mardi Gras World, a working warehouse for the building and storage of Mardi Gras floats. Visitors can take an hour-long tour of the facility, which shows the floats in various stages of creation. Pieces...

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...
