Weekend Getaway: New Orleans, LA Edition

30 Nov

New Orleans offers up many adventures for a quick getaway filled with food,jazz, history, and culture.  The culture in New Orleans is unlike any other.  As people immigrated to the United States, the people in New Orleans blended their individual cultures and cultivated one unique culture heavily influenced by Native Americans, Spanish, French, and Africans. 

Walk About

Stroll down St. Charles Avenue to marvel at 19th century mansions.
