For those who don’t know, two of the biggest tourist attractions in New Orleans were never under water: the French Quarter and the Garden District. Everything on the east side, specifically Slidell, was what was hit (and is still mostly abandoned).
But the “Big Easy” is open for business and wants everyone to know it. Whether you’re into ghost and vampire tours, old architecture, cemetery tours, or just enjoy several different parties nightly from bar to bar, New Orleans is filling up with people again (and is a bargain right now.)
Stay in a haunted hotel, peruse the voodoo shops, and drink your fill even in the streets (as long as your poison isn’t in a glass container.) Here’s a few snapshots from our recent long weekend: New Orleans French Quarter And Tours.
