New Orleans Fun

New Orleans could be one of the funnest cities I have ever been too.  The food, the drinks, the people and the art was fantastic! Although small, my favorite restaurant there was Huck Finns Cafe  They had a little something for everyone and even carry there own Cajun seasoning that you can purchase online here (Actually, they will send it in the mail to you if you contact them).  I was thrilled to be able to bring a little taste of Louisiana home with me.

Another favorite place of mine was Cafe Del Monde.  Established in 1862 in the New Orleans French Market, open 24 hours a day.  The Cafe is known for there beignets that are purely amazing!!

Other places I would suggest visiting in Louisiana are Oak Alley Plantation (Beautiful), Laural Plantation, Commanders Palace, a New Orleans cemetery and who could forget Bourbon Street? (the frozen margaritas sold all over are amazing)

I was very luck to experience "bead tossing" while I was on Bourbon street.  A local bar invite my group of friends on the balcony and we thew out beads for about a hour.  It's so crazy what people will do for a cheap strand of beads.  None the less, it was a moment I will never forget.

If you are thinking about taking a trip to New Orleans, Louisiana I would strongly suggest it.  I know I will be going back some day - hopefully sooner rather than later. Cheers!
