Was there during Mardi Gras... Incredible food and bars. Lots of energy and people were really friendly. You must try Oceana and Patty O’Brien’s

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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Most of the NOLA is geared to adults, but you can organize a "kid-friendly" itinerary. What kind of "adult themes" are you talking about? Foodie? Drinking? Historical? Bachelor Party? Girls Getaway? Shopping?
