Pictures of New Orleans

September 20, 2011 • By

My trip to New Orleans in June was my first and was very enjoyable.  We didn’t really do much partying; we wanted to just see as much of the city as we possibly could.  But rest assured, we certainly visited the French Quarter while we were there and were treated to great entertainment and delicious food.

But true to its southern roots, the humidity was a bear.  The heat was palpable and very uncomfortable, so forewarned is forearmed.  Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated if you ever plan to visit in any month that does not end with -ary!  Despite temps that could send you to the brink of madness, good times were still being had.

I think one of my highlights were the old, Victorians that we saw as we rode the green trolley through the tree lined streets in an eerily quiet neighborhood.  Our cruise on the Creole Queen was relaxing as we took in the ambiance and beauty that is New Orleans, Louisiana.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.
