Day 19 - 💙 New Orleans.
The French Quarter in New Orleans is truly incredible. It has Character, History, Artists, Galleries, Singers and Jazz bands serenading you on the streets. So much to see.
#Green In the late 1700s, this little tavern in New Orleans was the base of operations for Jean Lafitte, a pirate, spy and celebrated hero of the Battle of New Orleans. Jean Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop still stands today as a revered bar on Bourbon Street in New Orleans’ French Quarter. The story of Lafitte may be held together with a few admitted embellishments, but that story continues to be told today in his favorite watering hole and the oldest bar in the American South. The graves in New Orleans are above ground due to the water level as this city is below sea level. The rising water level beneath the ground caused the coffins to literally force their way out of the soil.
View of St. Louis Cathedral from Jackson Square #TroveOnTuesday This is the most photographed house in New Orleans. People will recognize it from far and wide. We took a free walking tour around the French Quarter (so worth it) and she spoke to us about the owners and history of this grand architectural gem. It is so beautiful out there. New Orleans is home to great Music and French quarter in NOLA. Enjoy live music in the streets This is the absolute best place for beignets, the original Cafe Du Monde, New Orleans. Simply delicious with cafe au lait, anytime of day or night. #LoveMyTown Crab stuffed shrimp wrapped in prosciutto on a bed of pecan slaw. Yes please. Wonder about and walk A little bit of Voodoo anyone? I love the atmosphere of New Orleans. Historic 18th-century Catholic cathedral in the heart of the Big Easy. A brass band plays daily around 11 AM from the balcony of Tableau. Really adds to the New Orleans experience! A fun row of doors in the French Quarter. Currently in New Orleans for the first time and had the most amazing beignets for breakfast. #foodiefinds #sweetspot I'm not usually a big museum fan... but this one was pretty awesome! Lots of sights & SO MUCH history, WW2 survivors frequently volunteer and share their stories :) A+ One of the cargo ships out of the thousands that navigates the Mississippi river coming from the Gulf of Mexico to the Port of New Orleans. The port is also home to several cruise lines that serves millions of passengers every year. St. Charles Avenue, Garden District, New Orleans... Go for a walk, the street cars are often over crowded... many great secrets await. The French Quarter, Nawlins. #restaurant Crawdad boils were served in food carts everywhere during the French Quarter Fest in New Orleans. From the crawdad to the potato to the sausage and corn, it was all so delicious! An ice cold beer was the perfect accompaniment. One of the prettiest buildings in New Orleans. Crawfish Boil! By the fire department on Decatur. I love this sign. All over NOLA are these bittersweet remnants of days past. Coffee, crepe and email. My mobile office for the next hour. Endymion Extravaganza Mardi Gras 2014 Andrew Jackson Monument in Jackson Square, New Orleans Jackson Square is chock full of history and puts you right in the famous French Quarter. Took this shot with my back to the river and facing the Cathedral. Many street musicians perform near the square. Great place for people watching.
New Orleans is such an exciting and interesting place. I had not been in many years and really enjoyed being with my daughter there in late November 2015.
#neworleans #NOLA #jacksonsquare #frenchquarter Just a sausage, shrimp, and chicken creole alfredo. Basically low country heaven in a bowl.
It was hard to order here, everything looked amazing. The cruise ship I was on took more than 7 hours to navigate the Mississippi River before getting out to the open sea, the Gulf of Mexico. St Philip street - #vieuxcarre #neworleans #lights #ams2012 Talk about Nature's gifts...This was a stunning find. We looked like miniscule little beings sitting beneath it, basking under its protective canopy.
Here's the story of this Grandmother Tree.
Great place to take pictures. Try doing a tour, lots of history. Bourbon Street The St. Louis Cathedral is an iconic part of New Orleans. It's close to the water, and you can always get great pictures. Make sure to stop by Cafe Du Monde for a beignet when you're finished! #frenchquarter #nola #lifeatexpedia The downtown skyline amidst a brewing winter rain shower in the afternoon. Next to Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans Beignets from Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans. The original French Market coffee stand serving French doughnuts since 1860.... They taste like thick funnel cakes. This One of the best cities for architecture is New Orleans. The city takes you back to an old America; back to when jazz was being played at every night club. If you want to beat the crowd at cafe du monde, go around 8pm. It's usually empty... or at 3am since it is open 24 hours. #stunningstructures Delicious bakery and creamery on Magazine street- famous for shopping. Bought 8 of these babies! Driving down Poydras St. Jackson Square in the French Quarter New Orleans, LA Goat Cheese and organic greens salad, hummus and feta, and 1/4 Muffelta from Alberto's at the French Market. Delicious food from lovely people #BestOf5 Playin' a little blues on the streets of New Orleans. This is the beignet to die for when in the French Quarter area in New Orleans. I find this beignet better than the one where tourist flock and the wait line is ridiculous. Beignets are fried square shaped doughs and dusted with powder sugar. Mans best friend @City Park Shops in the French Quarter Best Charbroiled Oysters EVER!!! Topped with bleu cheese.......
#nola #dragos Bring me back! With Mardi Gras so close I can't help but feel homesick for this city that I've only had the pleasure of visiting. The colors of the buildings alone make you feel alive! There is something to be said about New Orleans mornings in late May. The air is wet, muggy, and clings to you like a shirt. It becomes cool at night and a breeze helps you relax. But soon day begins with glorious brightness. The sun is strong and beats down on you.
If you get up at seven, most of the city is still cleaning up from the night before. This isn't a place for early risers unless you want to see the buildings and homes without swarms of tourists getting in the way. But breakfast can be had. Quietly, with thought and introspection, with people watching and listening to birds singing their praise of a new day. The street cleaners wash the streets, the store managers sweep their sidewalks, the smell of coffee and breakfast foods fill the air, and you will catch yourself wishing you could live in this moment repeatedly.
#neworleans #morning #thoughts #earlymorning #breakfast I think there are two times everyone should visit New Orleans: during Mardi Gras and not during Mardi Gras. You get two completely different experiences and they are both different kinds of fun. Cafe du Monde is a must! Best brunch in town! Try the turtle soup!! Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
This street has it all in terms of entertainment. Bars, live music, restaurants, bright lights, loud sounds, colorful characters, and some seediness.
Great food in many places, nice drinks too. There are plenty of street performers to keep you entertained as well. Quintessential New Orleans building in the French quarter Sometimes the simplest looking dishes are the best. Mother's for just about anything is great but this Shrimp and Oyster Po'Boy is so worth the wait! The best place to drink a hurricane! Outside or in the dueling pianos bar! Careful though, it'll knock you down! Gorgeous spot for a #wedding in #NewOrleans #Louisiana #billandstella2015 Walking tours and rides galore next to the famous Jackson Square. There's also artists selling their work all along the fence if you are seeking a more original souveneir. The Painted Ladies of NOLA History of medical equipment #NewOrleans #Louisiana #FrenchQuarter #architecture #BestOf5 If you are looking for a market experience in NOLA, opt for the Frenchmen Art Market instead of the French Market. This is where the locals come for a good evening and local artwork/crafts. Both authentic and whimsical - can't beat that! Check out http://frenchmenartmarket.com for location and times. You'll see statues like this around town VooDoo in the Crescent City Certainly the best way to move things... Great advertisement along St. Charles Avenue. Coe for a walk to see the grand houses in this leafy section of New Orleans. Beignets. MMMMMM. Bourbon street. Lune Fete video light show for a limited time details here:

#architecture Old candlelit bar where Andrew Jackson used to consort with pirates. Also AIR CONDITIONED. Saved my life in the NOLA July heat. NOLA Sun rising over NOLA The French Quarter in New Orleans at night. A rare moment of relative quiet. Beautiful and humid. Garden District architecture. Take a tram ride on Canal Street! The trams give you the perfect opportunity to tour the city and connects multiple districts. Don't just stick to the French Quarter, get out and explore more of NOLA. How often do you catch a shot with no cars in your pic? French Quarter One of many reasons I love New Orleans: a city with its own background music. Here, a street band invites a special guest musician. French Quarter Liked the entrance Canal Nawlins' If you are in New Orleans and want to see more than the tourist filled streets of the French Quarter. Swing by and rent a bike. Larry had great bikes and gave us suggestions for a full day tour. Incredible neighborhoods, shops, ferry boat ride, parks... Must do!! Saint Roch's is one of the older cemeteries in New Orleans. Make sure to check out inside the Chapel. There are some odd offerings inside, very interesting. Check out more photos - http://turtlestravel.com/cities-dead-new-orleans-cemeteries/ Easily one of the most photogenic of spots in the entire city. Sizzling shrimp was sublime in this fancy but approachable little gem. The food was uniformly excellent and I found possibly my favorite cocktail in the world: the Skeleton Key. Rye, ginger beer, lemon juice, and bitters. Perfect Jazz Fest warm up. So many things to do in the Jackson Square area. Behind the church is the French quarters where there's beautiful artitecture to admire. The French Quarter Fest was a great time to visit New Orleans. Beignets and Coffee😍 Must do in NOLA The Frenchmen Art Market is a great place to experience the artisans of New Orleans. It was so fun---and you have to check out the Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro across the street! There are lots of colorful buildings, fun cafes, late-night restaurants, and of course, Bourbon Street, in this area of New Orleans. #colorful Jackson Square on a sunny day is a something to fall in love with. Graves falling down #delicious. One of the restaurants at the W W II museum in New Orleans . Great atmosphere , lots of WWII photographs, tv's with old film reels, good music and really good service. gumbo with chicken, sausage and alligator that was fantastic . Parmesan crusted oysters, grilled pork belly with baby arugula and a tomato jam😁😁😁😁😁Local brews, liquor options an Coke products. Prices comparable to local places. Thank a Veteran 🇺🇸 City Park, New Orleans - A beautiful place to wander around, full of activities like paddle boats and kid's activities. It's beautiful and full of perfect gardens.
