Visiting New Orleans For the First Time

If you’re heading to the Cresent City for the first time, you’ll find that there’s no shortage of things to do. There are apartments available throughout the city, and many of them are within walking distance of some great attractions. Whether you go for a bed and breakfast in the Garden District or decide to stay in the French Quarter so that you can be closer to the action, you’re sure to enjoy your visit.

Take a Tour

This city has an amazing history, and you can learn more about it through various tours. There are several famous plantations homes along the Mississippi and in the nearby areas, including the famous Nottoway plantation home. If you don’t want to deal with the 1.5 hour drive, then make a quick trip over to the Longue Vue House and Gardens. Other tours that are worth taking include the Voodoo Bone Lady Haunted Tours and walking tours of the cemeteries. You’ll find a little bit of history waiting for you around every corner in this fascinating city.

Shopping on Royal Street

With a courtyard apartment in the French Quarter, you can step out your front door and enjoy some great shopping and sightseeing. New Orleans is famous for their beignets, so start by having breakfast at the Café Du Monde. Then spend your day, or even a few days, traveling through the amazing shops on Royal Street. While this road doesn’t have the fame of Bourbon Street, it does have an incredible collection of shops that you won’t find anywhere else. Most of these businesses close down the week of Mardi Gras, so you’ll want to play your trip around the carnival is shopping is your main priority. You’ll be impressed with the collection of art, antiques, and unique little collectibles.

Rest and Relaxation in the Garden District

One of the most beautiful parts of the city, the Garden District is a family-friendly area that people of all ages enjoy. You’ll have easy access to fine dining and shopping. You’ll also be able to take in some of the most amazing architecture in the city. You can easily spend a day just walking down the street looking at the incredible homes, and then stop in at the Commander’s Palace for an exquisite meal. As evening falls, you can head over to Le Bon Temps Roule for live music and an eclectic group of patrons.

April to November for the Best Weather

Temperatures can drop in December, January, and February, so most people only travel to the city during this time if they’re interested in the Mardi Gras festivities. If you’re more interested in seeing the sights and taking in the local history, then you’ll want to come in the spring or fall. April, May, September, and October typically have temperatures in the 70s, and the sun is still shining. The wettest time is from June to September, so be sure to pack your gear if you decide to travel then.

Getting Around in New Orleans

You can fly into the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport if you’re coming from the other side of the country. However, most people from across the southern part of the country choose to simply drive through the bayou to the Crescent City. Once you’re in the city, you can rent a car to get around and see all the sights. Be sure to look up the streetcar schedule so that you can take in the Big Easy at a slightly slower, and more enjoyable, pace.

                                                            The house was clean and it is in a nice location. I would stay there again.

                                                            We traveled with our two teens and grandmother and a small dog. We were very comfortable in this house. It has an artsy /slightly rustic charm. In addition to the the two beds, there is a pull out couch. There is a small kitchen. Andrew was great and helpful. Loved his music and voice. The area was wonderful with very easy access to the French Quarter by ferry only about 2 blocks from the house. We spent more evenings in Algiers Point than we originally expected because we enjoyed the laid back charm and friendliness. There were several favorite restaurants and a take out place that we loved, tout de sweet and appetite repair(take out only).Rosetree glass was a beautiful studio . Everything was a short walk from the house. Andrew, thank you for providing a wonderful home.
