The French quarter is a must for anyone visiting Nola. As always, have a few pralines and then have a few more. Listen to live music. Stroll along the levee and people watch. It don't get any better than NOLA!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

No idea, but it is hard to drive an RV down many of the narrow streets and making turns can be almost impossible.

My friend and I are heading to New Orleans June 9 for a week. We are booked into Dauphine Hotel. I have never travelled anywhere before, coming from Toronto. I'm looking for any tips, where to eat (I'm allergic to seafood) what to see, maybe some money saving tips as well. There's so much info on the web, it's really difficult to narrow it down. Would be great to get some info from folks who visit often or even live there. Any feedback on Dauphine would be great as well!
