3 Days in New Orleans

Louisiana, New Orleans Guide (B): 3 Days in New Orleans

New Orleans, NOLA, Crescent City, the Big Easy. Whatever you choose to call it New Orleans will leave a lasting impression. The city that sits on the mighty Mississippi River in Louisiana is a vibrant hub of non-stop music, great food and a fusion of cultures and nationalities. New Orleans radiates energy, colour and goes by the saying ‘laissez les bon temps rouler’ – let the good times roll. Here’s how to roll on your 3 days in New Orleans.

Coming up are sixteen sights, attractions and must dos for your trip to the Big Easy. There’s free stuff to see in New Orleans and a range of great walking tours and excursions. I haven’t put them in itinerary form so you can pick and choose when to work them into your stay. There’s enough here to see and do for three or even four days in New Orleans. Why not pin it for later. This map of the French Quarter should help you find your bearings.

Hop on a streetcar ($1.25 one way – you’ll need the exact fare as they don’t give change) and head down leafy streets to the garden district and admire some of the city’s most beautiful homes, columned mansions and, of course, gardens. A walking tour will give you a break from the city’s heaving touristy spots and give you the chance to check out a more residential area. The French Quarter is easily walkable and you’ll find more information on tours by clicking here. ......
