Everything in New Orleans is a good idea

New Orleans, LA, United States
3 Kudos
I was in the beautiful and lively city of New Orleans during the labour day weekend and I fell in love with the city. New Orleans is unlike any city I've ever visited. The vibe in the city is such that it makes you part of it even if you are just visiting. The best part of New Orleans is its music and food. Few might even say the party scene. Jazz and Jambalaya for me. New Orleans has a history of being haunted especially the French Quarters and the Haunted tours in New Orleans is a must do. But, don't forget to carry a drink with you. The open container policy in the french quarters makes it easy for you to enjoy the city tours while enjoying your drink on a hot a humid day.
