Destination: New Orleans, Louisiana
|Featured Hotel: Ritz-Carlton New Orleans|
We'll start our tour of New Orleans in the French Quarter, on Royal Street, just about a block from "party central" on Bourbon Street. Royal Street is a bit quieter, and has some really amazing antique shops and art gallieries. But, if you want to stay right in the thick of the action, you can stay on Bourbon Street at the Ramada Plaza Inn on Bourbon, or at the Royal Sonesta Hotel. Other choices nearby include the Maison Dupuy, the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans, and the Iberville Suites.
There are also many hotels along Canal Street, where the streetcars run. These include the Westin New Orleans at Canal Place, the Chateau Dupre French Quarter, the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, the Marriott New Orleans, and the JW Marriott.
Heading down towards the Mississippi River, we'll find Jackson Square. If you'd like to stay in this part of the French Quarter, you can try the Omni Royal Orleans, the W New Orleans French Quarter, and the Historic French Market Hotel.
Across the street from Jackson Square, we come to the river. Just downstairs and to the right from this spot is the famous Cafe du Monde, where you can get coffee and beignets (these delicious fried donuts are a New Orleans specialty, don't miss them). There are lots of shops and restaurants at the nearby Jackson Brewery complex.
There are a number of riverboats offering cruises up and down the Mississippi.
If you walk down Woldenberg Park along the riverfront, you'll pass the IMAX theater and the Aquarium of the Americas, and come to the mall at the Riverwalk Marketplace, at the end of Canal Street, near the Convention Center, and a few blocks from the Louisiana Superdome, where you can also find the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel, and the W New Orleans.
Finally, we'll head back to the French Quarter, down Decatur Street.
