Over the weekend I booked a springtime trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. I am really excited! Spending 6 days and 5 nights in the Big Easy with one of my best friends is sure to be a blast. AND we're going during Jazzfest where greats like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Eagles, and John Mayer will be playing.
I can't wait to try creole food, enjoy jazz music, and take all of the haunted tours that the city boasts. Here are a few Pinterest images that have me psyched:
And since we're on the subject of New Orleans, I have to throw this in! Drew Brees is the man! Living in SoCal and seeing him leave the Chargers was a sad day. But since he had to go, I had to go with him. I root for the Saints. And I'll be cheering as he returns to Cali this weekend to stomp the 49ers! Too bad I won't be in NOLA during football season.
Here's where my What the Hell Wednesday comes into play: travel fees. For the airfare + hotel (5 nights at a place in the French Quarter) it cost $970! That's insane to me. The hotel is the most shocking. Even after splitting the room I'm still paying nearly $500. Let's hope I have a blast on my trip and it's well worth the sky-high price.
Anyone been to the Big Easy that would like to offer some tips on what to do and see? It'd be greatly appreciated :)
