      Are there any restaurants for very restricted diets?

      New Orleans Apr 17, 2014 at 1:23 PM

      One of my travel mates doesn't eat seafood (except fish), won't eat creole or Cajun food, is very allergic to black pepper, and won't eat pork or any breaded and fried food. She does eat beef and chicken. Where can we take her in NO that is moderately priced?

    • New Orleans, Louisiana - Old Gentilly Road - Motel 6 Area & Other places for April 2014

      New Orleans Mar 31, 2014 at 8:07 AM

      My husband and I are headed to New Orleans the second week in April. That was the only time we could travel and didn't know it was French Quarter Festival. The only place I found close was on Old Gentilly Road as everything was booked or cost over $200 per night. I was just wondering is it safe to drive after dark or not. Also we have two swamp tours booked and I would like to take a day trip to Meterie Cemetery to see Millionaires Row. Are these safe trips to venture out into the daytime and do? I want to see and experience New Orleans but have read some scary things about the Big Easy and I don't want any troubles just a great time. Any advise for a first timer in NO?? Please advise as we leave next Wednesday. Thanks so much!!

    • Sports car rental or track?

      New Orleans Mar 13, 2014 at 6:09 PM

      Me and my friend are going to come to new orleans very soon for a small vacay and I wanted us to rent a sports car for a couple days or so. I don't mean like a camaro or mustang or nothing like that. More like a mercedes SL or lotus or corvette, something like that. Also if there is no place like that is there a race track somewhere in new orleans where you can take a sports car for a spin around the track? I love racing and cars and so does my friend so this is one of our dreams to do in new orleans so please if anyone knows anything do not hesitate to reply. Thank you all.

    • Hauntings in New Orleans

      New Orleans Mar 1, 2014 at 8:38 AM

      I love ghost stories, hauntings & spirits. Last year I visited Savannah, Ga and loved all the stories & tours. But I was told that Savannah was #2 haunted city & New Orleans was #1. In Savannah I got more info from the locals than I did online. So when I visit New Orleans I want to hear about hauntings, ghosts & maybe see a spirit or two. So can anyone give me info so I can enjoy New Orleans as much as I did Savannah? Where can I see orbs & get creeped out?

    • Getting around Louisiana

      Louisiana Jan 29, 2014 at 4:18 PM

      I am trying to organize a small group of 60+ aged adventurers on a trip to Louisiana from Australia. We would love to visit and catch up on some Cajun music and Zydeco bands. I have found information for Festivals in September in New Iberia & Angie. This would mean a 7-10 day stay in Louisiana.
      We don't want to drive ourselves as everyone wants to have a good look around.
      I can't find any info on small group tours that would fit our ideas. Maybe even a train would work out, but I am not even sure which train to look for.
      We are pretty open to suggestions, but definitely don't want to do the large coach thing.
      Hope somebody can help.

      Mardi Gras the prior week end and a few days before March 1st and the main parade, how is it?

      New Orleans Jan 22, 2014 at 10:21 AM

      We are thinking about going the prior week end and a few days before March 1st and the main parade on the 4th. Is the experience similar, possibly safer, for the earlier parades Excalibur, Cesar, Adonis and Atlas on the weekend from 21st of February thru 23 February? Where the parade routes, are they the same as the main? All comments are greatly appreciated. What areas would you suggest to stay? Chuck

    • Considering moving to Shreveport from Louisville, KY

      Shreveport Jan 14, 2014 at 12:17 PM

      Hello! I've lived in the Derby City all my life, other than a short time I lived in Batesville, MS, & I'm beginning to feel that my family & I need to relocate. We're a family of 5 (hubby, 3 young sons, & myself), & I would really like to find a place in Louisiana to plant roots & raise my children. An ideal place would be somewhere with lots of family activities, public schools that excell in education, safe (I'm aware that no town can be completely safe but a nice place to raise children), several job opportunities, & a place where low-income families can still thrive & strive to better their lives. I've never been to Louisiana but something has always drawn me to the state & I would like to raise my family there. My initial choice locale was New Orleans, but I'm willing to move to any of the other cities, so long as the above mentioned criteria are in place. If anyone has any helpful advice, I would greatly appreciate the feedback. Thanks in advance, Erin G.

    • Le Pavillion vs. Hotel Monteleone

      We are looking into Le Pavillion and also Hotel Monteleone for our romantic anniversary trip to New Orleans in May. We like small-ish, boutique-y hotels w/ impeccable service. Walking distance to nearby attractions, restaurants, bars, but not necessarily Bourbon St. I'd love something w/ the old world decadance of N.O. decor. I've heard these 2 hotels are the best, but which fits my needs more?

      Things to do 35-45 y'olds nightlife

      New Orleans Dec 29, 2013 at 9:27 PM

      A friend and I will be travelling to N/O late May 2014. Can anyone recommend a nice place to stay, a little away from the main drag in or close to the French Quarter? Room service, or eateries on premises would be good. Our budget is healthy: $100-$150 p.n. USD average ok although value for money always appreciated
      Want something reasonably quiet, but walking distance to Bourbon St etc. We're active & mobile so walking not an issue. Its been 10 years since I've been so not sure what is still good post Katrina etc. Any suggestions on things to do welcome.
      Also tips on places to go for authentic local cuisine and local live music. We're not massive clubbers but wouldn't mind some more lively places than just eat -n -leave -restaurants
      Many thanks in advance

      You know when there was the Hurricane Katrina in 2005 , i was young, i was ten , and at that time from the French TV, I could only see , what French TV wanted us to know. Then as the years went by, I got more and more interested in that city. And what I can say today is that i've fallen in love with it . I'm 19 now, and i'm writting an essay on it . And believe me i love this amazing New Orleans, i feel like i need to go there , i must go there like something is calling me. So can you advise me some places to visit ? I would like to go to Congo Square and join some Festivals.
