I’ve been to Nola over 5 times now, and I still haven’t tried everything thing I want. This town is full of options and things to do all the time. NOLA is a 24/7 city, picking what to do and when can be a HUGE challenge. In my opinion, you really need to plan your days if you are wanting to experience multiple things.
Divide and conquer…
Divide how much time you have by what your priorities are history, art, music, culture, and so on. Then add in a little time for the randomness that will occur. Next, you have to have time for naps. If you are in the 30 and up club, be sure to subtract a few hours for sleep.
Literally every weekend, every weekday, night and day, there is something to do in NOLA for anyone and everyone. NOLA is full of free cultural festivals. We went to the Tremé/7th Ward Arts and Culture Festival.
Tremé and the 7th Ward have given life to some of New Orleans’ (and the world’s) most famous works of art, music, and culture.
The French Quarter is referred to as the “Crown Jewel” of NOLA. It’s one of NOLA’s historic neighborhoods. Often times, people associate NOLA with beads, open containers, and partying, but it really is so much more than that. It’s live entertainment, culture, people, watching, meeting new people, food, and love.
Below I’ve put together a list of places that I have been to so far…
- Melba’s- very popular and open 24/7
- Gene’s – Not that great and overpriced
- Pier Seafood Market
- Red Ruby Slipper Cafe
- Daisy Dukes
- Elks Club
