I know alot of people don't like it. Maybe they've had a bad experience there. They feel it's not a wholesome city. Or it's dirty. But I think there is such fun to be had there. Any kind of live music that you want can be found. Good food. No, great food.
We had a beyond delicious meal at this restaurant - everything was made from scratch right on the premises.And that's the norm here.
Not to mention the beignets - with french atmosphere - at Cafe du Monde.
Add beautiful architecture, the Mississippi River setting and friendly people - New Orleans has it all. I've never been to Mardi Gras but it's on my "someday" list. And I can't wait.
