New Orleans Travel Guide

4th May 2016 / By Guest Contributor


Traveling the world has always been a big dream of mine. There’s a feeling I get when I go somewhere I have never been before. I come back feeling educated and thankful to be able to find myself in other people’s culture, food, music, stories and home. Some of the greatest places to visit are those that are rich in history and if it allows me to enjoy an “adult beverage” outdoors while I explore every nook and cranny, then that’s even better. If you like what you are reading then you should follow me to New Orleans, a place known for its dynamic music, exquisite cuisine, and for its vibrant festivals.

With so much beauty to explore I’ve created a checklist of museums, restaurants and other eminent places that you cannot leave New Orleans without seeing.
