New Orleans Trip Report
Thanks to everyone who helped me along the way with questions I had about our first trip to NOLA.<BR><BR>Stayed five days at Le Richelieu in the French Quarter. Nice hotel in a good location...close to Cafe Du Monde! Ate at several good restaurants, my favorite was Emeril's Delmonico...his was Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.<BR><BR>Went to the House of Blues Gospel Brunch and really enjoyed it. Also went to the Aquarium of the Americas and would recommend it. Took a Cypress Swamp Tour. It was a good experience, but kind of pricey. Had a cooking class at New Orleans School of Cooking.<BR><BR>If you're going, don't be surprised - lots of the streets do smell. But, they are the kind of streets that you might avoid anyway. We were also surpised at how dirty the Quarter was - trash everywhere, lots more than even other large cities. We generally avoided Bourbon Street, not really our scene. Felt safer than we expected most everywhere.<BR><BR>Hope this helps someone in the future!
