G found out today that he has to go to New Orleans in two weeks for work. Every time he has to travel for work, I immediately hop on Orbitz to check out flight prices. Usually the flights are silly expensive so I never end up going. But, this time, I was in for a surprise. Turns out nonstop roundtrip flights to New Orleans from Kansas City are super cheap – to the tune of about $149! So, I’ll be headed down south in 2 weeks!
New Orleans isn’t necessarily on the top of my dream destinations list – but I would like to see as much of the US of A as possible before we have kids so I’m super excited to check another city off of my list. Plus, it’s hard to pass up a trip to a cool city for only $149!
What to do? Where to go?
Seeing as I’ve never been to New Orleans before, I need some tips.
I’ll have 2 full days to explore the city while G is working. I know we’ll be staying somewhat close to the French Quarters/Bourbon Street area. I’d like to do as much walking as possible, so hopefully there is plenty to see within walking distance of that area.
