Spirit of New Orleans

New Orleans, LA, United States

New Orleans, Louisiana is absolutely one of my favorite places that I've ever been. The atmosphere, the music, and the food is something that just can't be found anywhere else. Mardi Gras is a fantastic time to visit under certain conditions. We enjoyed being there for the parades, but then getting out before night time. The craziness isn't our scene. We love walking around and exploring the french quarter and, of course, eating the amazing food New Orleans has to offer. You can't miss beignets or po boys or barbecue shrimp or turtle soup! And of course, you must have the requisite Hurricane in a glass at Pat O'Brien's on Bourbon street!
