New Orleans

Although it was raining today, we still decided to go to the Big Easy to spend some time in the French Quarter. Thanks to a few friends' recommendations, we knew the scoop on the best places to eat and where to go and what to see while there. It was such a cool place, we'd have been content just to walk around and look at the sites.There is just so much more to see than the beautiful buildings.Our music lover was in heaven with the live music that was there.And the food was hands down voted the best out of everything we've had so far on our trip!Even the National Park was full of live music with a jazz performance in full swing. You just can't go wrong with a place that has great food and great music.It was hard to take pictures due to the rain, but when it stopped for a few minutes here and there, I snapped enough to have some memories.This trip we were just passing through so we knew we wouldn't have much time here, but next time we will want to spend lots of time in this unique place. We think this will easily be one of our faves!

I'm just getting around to reading about your time in New Orleans. Amazing place, isn't it? Glad you got to see it.

It is an amazing place. As I said, it was very emotional in some ways and such an uplifting thing in other ways. It definitely has had the most impact on us out of all of the cities so far. The food was THE BEST! Thank you for your tips.
