Check out the French Quarter in New Orleans!

Louisiana, New Orleans Guide (B): Check out the French Quarter in New Orleans!

A visit to New Orleans usually means a visit to its French Quarter, the oldest section of the city. And rightfully so! This vibrant neighbourhood is ah-mazing. Also, as a solo traveller, the French Quarter was everything I could have wanted it to be – fun, safe, and a feast for the senses!

When visiting New Orleans, I suggest staying in the French Quarter or at least, very close to it. If you need a hotel recommendation, I stayed at the International House Hotel, one street outside of the French Quarter, and loved it. I was right next to the action but not right in it, which suited me perfectly. As for other recommendations, please do read on!

Walking tours, steamboat tours, horse and carriage tours…there are so many from which you can choose!

Ghosts: You can be a paranormal investigator in a haunted house or explore the French Quarter’s seedy history on foot. You’ll learn about all sorts of things including the horribly infamous Madame LaLaurie and how she connects to Nicholas Cage! ......
