While in New Orleans, I spent the majority of my time in the French Quarter. It blends old french styles with contemporary architecture in many ways. There are lattice porches everywhere, brick work, and decorative plants. I stayed in Le Richelieu Hotel, which was just fantastic. It also meant that I was on one end of the French Quarter, but with easy walking access to the rest of it. Here are some of the highlights of my visit:
A few blocks away from the hotel is the Old Ursuline Convent. I didn’t get a chance to go in, but I walked by it every day of my visit.
Here are some of the sights within a few blocks of the hotel:
There are also a lot of brightly colored residential houses in the areas further from the river.
There are also countless bars and restaurants throughout the quarter. Here are some pics of three I visited and enjoyed.
And we end the tour with a few shots inside Pat O’Brien’s (where of course we all got Hurricanes.
Next time: As previously stated, I will be taking the next week off due to the holidays. I’m hopeful that my trip to the mountains will yield some snow shots, or that when I return to NYC it will have some form of snow, but if that doesn’t happen, we will continue with some specific locations in New Orleans (I told you I had a ton of pics from there).
