This past week, I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans. My husband went for a conference and I tagged along. I'll admit, I was pretty much terrified to go out alone but I soon learned my way around and was quite excited to go and do - even alone. I had five days and plenty of time to nose around the city and if you have the time, I suggest you do the same. If you don't here's some gems that I found that you might enjoy too - along with some little tips on how to get where you are going.
