Trip Report New Orleans by bike

Jump to last reply

I just returned from three nights in New Orleans, my third time there and what a treat it was to see some of the city by bike. I'd never taken a bike tour but from now on I'm going to seek them out. The Confederacy of Cruisers tour I took, the regular introduction to New Orleans with Cassady as our tour guide, was a blast. I learned so much about the city, it's history and culture, while leisurely peddling along the (thankfully) flat city streets. We visited St. Roch Cemetery, biked out to the edges of the 9th Ward and through streets that told the history of New Orleans through its architecture. Cassady was funny and being a native to NOLA, had a lot of interesting stories to tell.

I stayed at the Hilton Riverside. It's OK. A bit tired but has good beds and I get points. The public areas are nice. Not much else to say about the hotel.

Restaurants:
Gumbo Shop: very bland food, service wasn't good, my husband got sick from something he ate there. Would never return.
Johnny's Po Boy: ate a egg/cheese/sausage/biscuit breakfast that was good and cheap. Would return.
Stanley's: ate salad for lunch. Delicious salad, good service, nice ambience. Would return.
Mr. B's Bistro: ate dinner with a group. Delicious soft shelled crab and good service. Unfortunately portions were to small to please anyone considering the prices. My husband hates that - he won't return.
Cafe Adelaide: ate dinner with a group. Fabulous. Had Roasted Cobia that was delicious. Everyone loved their food and the White Chocolate Biscuit Pudding was to die for. Would return.

The French Market was boring. Not much there and low quality.
People Watching was fun and some antique shops worth browsing through.
Walking around at night, bar hopping and watching people was fun. I don't remember the names of the places. DUH!
Took a Cemetery Tour. It was good and the cemetery amazing. Much of the information from the bike tour I took was repeated. The guide was knowledgeable and loves NOLA.

It's a fun city which I enjoyed more because I learned a bit of its history.
