supposedly haunted in building 5 (we stayed in building 3). The first night, I felt a strange presence in the middle of night (though I could have been dreaming). This is a very charming hotel and great location.
If you are going to NOLA in the colder months, be warned that you most likely won't see any alligators in the swamps, as they don't like the cold. We were warned and went anyways...I can't wait to go back and see it in the warm months.
beautiful grounds, highlighted by the row of old oak trees in front..this is the grand plantation, but everyone says if you want more history, to see Laura. You can actually see them both, though, because they are on the same street.
You have to try a beignet when you are in NOLA. It's like one of the signature foods. This is the second most famous place to have them. They are unorganized at the counter but the beignets are worth it!
This place gets tons of bad reviews, and mostly worthy of them. We didn't have many options as it was Christmas. Only go here if there are no other options, but it wasn't as bad as some of the people have said.
It was a last minute itinerary adjustment and worked out well. In a little over three hours and for 45 bucks, we got a HUGE overview of the whole city. Our guide and his van took us around the french quarter, downtown, garden district, mid city, a cemetery, by the lake and then to the upper and lower ninth ward to learn about the devastation of katrina (also, to see how much work still needs to be done six years later). I thought this tour was well worth it.
Probably the most realistic ghost tour in NOLA, Mary is a voodoo priestess and she dispelled most of the myths of voodoo for us, along with our guide Gina, we learned a lot about spirits while walking through cemeteries and other places at night. We saw plenty of orbs...
