New Orleans is a city like no other. It has an old-school charm in parts, while areas like Bourbon Street are just party central. From music to voodoo to seafood and more, New Orleans has something everyone will love.
Here are some of my favorite memories from the trip:
The Jazz Preservation Hall is a building with a lot of history. It has been a private residence, an inn, a tavern, and an art gallery. In 1961 it became the Preservation Hall - a place to honor and protect New Orleans jazz and its history.
If you ever go to New Orleans, you have to go to Cafe Du Monde for their beignets. If you like powdered sugar and delicious coffee, you will love this place. There is a wait, but it's sooo worth it.
Another place you have to go in New Orleans is Bourbon Street! Even if you aren't a big drinking person, you should just walk down the street for the experience. I took this picture at night and I think the blurriness is kind of symbolic of a trip down Bourbon Street ;)
One other thing I like about New Orleans is the architecture. You can see the lacy design at the top of the columns on this house. The city is full of beautiful elements like this, where you can tell someone really put time into it. These things are part of what gives New Orleans its charm.
Have you ever been to New Orleans? Do you want to go now? Do you know of any other cities that remind you of New Orleans?
