You guys, I ate so. many. beignets. I went to Cafe DuMonde twice - once by myself the day I arrived, and once on our last night with several (tipsy) work colleagues. We didn't wait for a table either time!
Despite all the walking, I am three pounds heavier. This sucks, but I don't regret it!
I spent time in the French Quarter and the garden district. I loved doing a self-guided walking tour of all the awesome homes on St. Charles. The streetcars were also a perfect way to get around. We ate at several good restaurants, including Mother's, a local favorite (*** and Jenny's), and a touristy oyster house in the FQ. There was so much more I wanted to see and do, so we will just have to go back!
I definitely recommend NOLA as a travel destination. :o)
