Is NEW ORLEANS too wild for grandma?

Jump to last reply

Hello...I'm a traveling Grandma! My husband and I, in our 50's, need a relaxing, romantic getaway in late April for 5 nights. We are flying for free on Southwest from San Diego using our points.

My husband has suggested New Orleans. He has been there twice on business trips...and a few years ago he told me he would never take ME there because it's too wild for me. But now he has changed his mind! He knows I love music and he has suggested New Orleans for our April getaway!

Our other choices are Austin, Texas, and Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston is a very long flight from San Diego on Southwest. (New Orleans and Austin are shorter.) I should mention I love Austin, ((Y))but we did go to Austin about a year ago. Maybe we should try someplace new. LOVED the music and the friendly, happy, courteous vibe in Austin.

I have never been to the southern states of our USA and have always wanted to go! >:D<

We enjoy good music (but NOT ear-blasting loud music!) We love to try new foods with exotic spices. We like scenic drives, nature walks, and culture & history.

Our favorite places to stay are friendly b&bs or guesthouses or inns which are owner-run.

Crime & safety seems to come up a lot on-line for New Orleans. :-o But I was nervous about crime before I went to Washington DC, and I LOVE Washington DC, although I was nervous at times, I would love to return someday.

So...is New Orleans too wild for "Grandma"? Neither of us are big drinkers. We will have a beer or a glass of Chianti with dinner.

Feel free to give me your subjective, opinionated answers. I always learn something from everyone's viewpoint. Thank you!
