N'Awlins by valleysailor
my favorite place on this planet so far! Won a weekend in the penthouse at Windsor Court Hotel, limo, dinner in the Grill Room – everything! Also spent a week there last April (2010) for the French Quarter Festival which is much more fun, less expensive, and less crowded but with richer local entertainment than Jazz Fest. It is a local’s favorite.
If you get to NOLA, be sure to enjoy a ferry ride across the Big Muddy on either the Algiers or Gretna ferry, both running from Canal St.
