NOLA for St. Pat's Weekend

Jump to last reply

So...my daughter and I are planning a last minute trip to New Orleans for 3 nights. We will be staying just outside NOLA proper (Harahan) with my mother who is there for a few weeks for work. We've been many times, but always stayed in or near the French Quarter.

Are there any decent restaurants in the area?
We will be there on St. Patrick's Day...does anyone have any information about the various parades?
I was told that we should rent a car because getting into town would require several bus transfers and it isn't safe. Any comments?
Has anyone done a night ghost tour? Several years ago, we went on a cemetary tour that included a visit to a voodoo house, but it was during the day.
I'm also thinking about a swamp tour...any recommendations?
