When my husband and I moved to Florida (from Ohio!), our goal was to see all the new “nearby” cities. New Orleans happened to be the first on the list. We spent most of our time in the French Quarter, and we literally walked up and down every street. We like to do our research before we go, then just leave our maps in our bags and wander. I now know what the fuss is about when all the guidebooks tell you to go get the cafe au lait and beignets from cafe du monde! I never like to obviously dress like i’m a tourist, and often my husband and I get mistaken for locals. It’s the best way to find all the good places to go!
