New Orleans – the Big Easy

New Orleans - the Big Easy from North Carolina Travel Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

Stop. Wait. Don’t do it. Don’t book that same trip to New York that a billion squillion other people have taken for decades. You know the trip I mean. It’s that one where you take the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and get a picture with Lady Lib in the background. It’s the trip where you go to the top of the Empire State and take a windswept picture standing against the cage to stop people falling. It’s the tip where you did nothing new at all. The trip no one wants to hear about. 

The logical thing to do is choose somewhere else to spend your money on. LA? Maybe? There’s Vegas, too. Or perhaps somewhere in Florida. But there you go again, thinking of all the places that people have been visiting for years and telling you about it. You need to get out of your own head and think about visiting a place that’s steeped in American history and offers round the clock things to see that none of your friends or family will have seen before. Today, we’re going to look at New Orleans.

First, we should mention that although we’re attempting to look at a part of America that’s perhaps not as well-traveled as other tourist cities, that doesn’t mean the streets aren’t busy here. Accidents do happen. Check out a company like a local car accident lawyer (based in New Orleans) if you are affected. And now, on with the show. Let’s take a look at why you should save up your hard-earned cash and spend it on visiting the Big Easy.

New Orleans City Park

13,000 acres. That’s nearly a thousand football fields. Needless to say, you won’t get around this park in a day. As the 20th most visited park in the United States, you’d have to assume there are things to do for all the family. And you’d be right. There’s the botanical gardens. There’s the carousel gardens (yes, the carousel works!). There’s golf – both 18 holes style and ‘city putt’ style. There’s boating on the lake. There’s a forest. There’s tennis. Basically, if you’re the kind of person who can visit the park and find nothing to do, you’re probably the kind of person who would pass up a trip to Mars because you like to be in bed with the curtains drawn by no later than 9PM. But if you like fun, New Orleans City Park has it all. 

The French Quarter 

Dating back to 1718, the French Quarter is the oldest part of New Orleans. There’s food, music, architecture, and much more. The walking tours are recommended. People often describe the air as ‘electric’ – think the culture in the day, and things to do at night, ideal!
