Fasten your seatbelts, and I am taking you on a Jazzy ride!
It’s been 2 years since I spent my stay in New Orleans, but I wanted to write you a summary article of these magnificent 4 days. A brand new destination that is now offered by AIR TRANSAT from Montreal, twice a week. Flights on Sundays and Thursdays for around $ 350-400, depending on the time of year you want to go. A small getaway at an affordable price to discover a dynamic place filled with culture.
I strongly advise you to find a hotel in the “French Quarter“, this will allow you to walk in the small streets and do a good part of your exploration on foot. A neighborhood that is super vibrant both day and night. We were at the WYNDHAM hotel, a fairly standard hotel, but very central!
What I love most is walking around and exploring, so we hiked a lot! Neighborhoods to visit and activities that I recommend:
Of course, the fun of traveling is trying more typical dishes of the place. You can find plenty of Creole-inspired restaurants, oyster bars, more spicy dishes, etc. Here are my little recommendations:
Of course, it is very, very hot in the summer, but if you go more in the fall, you’re going to have a great temperature too. At the beginning of November, it started to be chilly, I still needed a little coat, I was cold in the evening with my jeans jacket. So plan!
Mostly, we traveled on foot. There is the “Upon, Up off bus” which goes around the city and can stop you at some interesting points. Otherwise, you have to take a ride in a “streetcar” which are their charming trams, very inexpensive!
There you go, hoping you’ll take a few of my suggestions for your next trip to New Orleans!
