I don’t care what anyone says, you can never go to New Orleans too many times. The music, the food, the people… Just the overall culture.
What’s makes the big easy even better is a girls trip to the BIG EASY!!! We granted ourselves some much deserved time away from work & family life and just had a grand old time!
We ate, we drank, we laughed, we danced and um REPEAT yea just like that!! Let me give you a recap of what our girls trip New Orleans style looked like.
My favorite way to get around this marvelous city is via street car. I recommend you to jump on one downtown and it will bring you back to where all the action is once you are done. To get the most for your cash purchase an all day pass which lasts for 24 hours so yea get going!
New Orleans is known for their above ground burials. Earlier days it was a struggle burying the dead without the casket floating back up due to the city’s high water tables. The solution was above ground tombs. Pretty genius and such a sight to see in a sort of eerie way of course. Source: New Orleans Above Ground Tombs
Throughout the city you can find amazing art. I plan to focus primarily on the arts my next visit to this wonderful place. Here are a couple that I found extraordinary.
To help balance things out from a lovely day of exploring with one of New Orleans popular libations in tow, in our case, The Hand Grenade. Be sure to eat. With so much to choose from you should have no issue in this area. From gumbo to jambalaya to fried catfish. Yes anything you can think up they got it!!
Oh and don’t forget your beignet, one of the delicacies New Orleans is known for!! Um um good!!!!
So what is New Orleans without a little French Quarter & Bourbon Street action? Some consider it a tourist trap but I love it and all here for it. We even lucked up and caught a few parades!!
All and all my crew and I had a marvelous time. This was indeed a girls trip for the books!!
Until next time.
