Classic Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane Cocktail is a must during a visit to New Orleans
New Orleans has the reputation of being a party city. Bourbon Street is known for cocktails, beads and a bit of debauchery. Thankfully this is a city that you choose what you want to do for entertainment. You can easily enjoy New Orleans without a stop on Bourbon Street or you can dive headfirst into the cocktails and craziness.
Amazing food abounds in New Orleans! Cajun, Creole and everything else you can imagine is available in the French Quarter and around the city. Make sure and come hungry because you will not be disappointed. One local told us that bad restaurant just don’t last in the city because there is so much competition and the food is so dang good.
The French Quarter is easily explored on foot. You can wander the streets checking out the amazing architecture, design, and feeling of New Orleans. Don’t forget to look up at the balconies and windows. You never know what you might see.
