    New Orleans anyone?

    Hey guys, just wondering if anybody has ever been to the N.O. I was there for new years 2012. I must say it was an awesome experience. I hail from Maryland so the road trip was lengthy, but i was with my good friends from college and the road trip itself may have been just as good as the visit. Also, New Orleans was extra alive that weekend because the sugar was that weekend (LSU vs. Virginia Tech). Unfortunately, we did not do a lot of sight seeing. Most of the trip was spent on bourbon street, also known as the Devils playground to myself and my comrades. We did get a chance to check out the french quarter, eat some beneigts (sp?), and also some fried gator which is delicious. Has anybody else had a similar experience? I will definitely go back again soon and I was wondering if anybody knew some hot spots that I should check out, whether its food, culture, etc. Thanks.

    New Orleans is by far my favorite city in the US. It has so much culture it's almost too much to take in from just one visit. Hit up Frenchman street for good music (both in the bars and on the street). If you ever get to go back, it's worth it to go outside the French Quarter and really see the effects of Hurricane Katrina, which are still being felt. Also, visiting the old cemeteries is interesting as well. Love the music, food, and people.

    I went to NOLA *years* ago...pre-Katrina, unfortunately I didn't get to stay and explore as much as I wanted to but it's stuck with me more than any trip ever has. I really adore it. There is so much history and a mix of cultures that's incredible to be a part of....it's a very vibrant, alive city. I'm afraid seeing the aftermath of Katrina would be quite devastating, but I do want to go back at some point.

    I was in New Orleans in 1989, and then have been there a couple of times post-Katrina for a conference and for a bachelor party weekend. I was struck by the fact that after Katrina Bourbon street seems to have far fewer jazz clubs than I remembered from the 80s, with many spots being taken over by pizza places and more contemporary clubs. I concur that the cemetery tours are very interesting. Just try to do them in a cooler part of the year. We roasted on ours in July!

    To see another side of NOLA other than Bourbon Street, then visit St Charles Ave and Magazine Street. Street cars run past the old mansions, Loyola, Tulane and there's wonderful food in the uptown section. (I love Mona's and Nacho Mamas!) Audubon Zoo and Park are nice as is City Park and the museum. Definitely do the cemetery tour but only as part of a group because people are often attacked and mugged in the cemeteries. There are wonderful clubs in the Bywater and Marigny that are frequented by the locals... New Orleans has a lot more to offer than just the Quarter!

    New Orleans is a beautiful city that is located in Louisiana. It is also known as the Big Easy. This city is notable for its; round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures.
