I can't believe it took me this long to get to New Orleans. I fell in love with this charismatic city the minute I hit the pavement, and I yearn for it every single day.
This is a magical place where you can be yourself, and find something quirky at just about every turn. I have never taken so much pleasure in wandering. My biggest tip is to do just that - wander your tush off!
Let's get started with accommodations - look no further than Madame Isabelle's House to rest your head every night. Check out my review http://bit.ly/29lYJ05
I couldn't stop drooling over the architecture and this teaser will explain why.
In the Big Easy, even bikes are cooler than yours. For real.
Let's move on to the delicious part - food! There is no shortage of mouthwatering vegetarian/vegan options. Here are my recommendations for sustenance and bars/live music venues:
