New Orleans is a place for all kinds of fun, from the food to the jazz, to the party scene. There’s so much to do in the city of NOLA, you’ll never be bored. As I was traveling, I’ve found some quite interesting activities in the city, such as clubbing, dining, or walking downtown.
French Quarter- The French Quarter is one of the main places to visit for a lively experience. If you want to get a good glimpse of the city, there’s plenty to see. Either you grab a quick cup of coffee or gobble up some beignets. Cafe Du Monde is a popular place to enjoy beignets and a nice hot cup of coffee. Johnny’s Po-Boy’s is a 50’s diner, with a huge selection of dishes. You can get a fried shrimp, alligator, or fish po-boy. Or, if you’re a simple person, who likes shrimp, you can enjoy a huge plate of fried shrimp, fries, and hush-puppies. This place is a nice, low-key spot, where you’re not bombarded with tourists.
Frenchmen Street is the perfect place to check out, for live music, the club scene, and bar-hopping. If you’re into a loud atmosphere, you’re in for a treat. Dragon’s Den is a 21+ nightclub, and a fun place to go, if you’re in the hip-hop scene. The vibe is welcoming, regardless of where you’re from or what you look like. Also, you can get in for free, on certain nights. If you’re the kind of person who likes to show off your twerk skills or vibe and smoke to some Gucci Mane, then this is your place. Also, there is a garden downstairs to socialize, as well as a balcony to check out the scenery. Some nights, there are live music, including jazz bands.
Bourbon Street is one place you should experience if you’re just trying to get drunk, and earn beads, if that’s your thing. This is a main tourist attraction where you can party non-stop, and will be stopped by random ladies who will force you to have shots. Tropical Isle is a bar with the famous Hand Grenade, also known as “world’s strongest mixed drink.” One of these bad boys is enough. They come in tall, green plastic cups with a grenade figure on the bottom, with a face.
