If you could go anywhere right now, where would you go? I’m getting the itch to plan a trip. Not sure where yet, but I would love to go back to New Orleans someday.
I imagine Halloween in New Orleans is pretty amazing with all the ghost stories, mystery, voodoo, and colourful, colorful characters. New Orleans was amazing when I was there in March – so alive and loud, so much music and food, a little smelly down some streets, a little creepy, but so intriguing, and so unforgettable. Everywhere you go there is something interesting to see, particularly, at night, when you see things in a whole different way. As you’ll see, I took a lot of pictures of Royal Street in the French Quarter at night. I will go back someday.
All of the following pictures are storefronts on Royal Street…
I really enjoyed walking through the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art…
Back of St. Louis Cathedral…it’s quite a sight in person.
or just create your own….
I still gush about New Orleans to anyone who asks (and some who don’t), but there is just so much to explore in the city. If you find yourself in New Orleans, and want a (quiet) break from the action in the French Quarter, check out at the sculpture garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art, I enjoyed it more than the museum (but I’m generally not overly fond of museums). I would put it on a “must do” list of things to do in New Orleans.
