New Orleans is a vibrant city with many offerings. From the numerous streets and corridors of the French Quarter to the quaint Uptown neighborhood, there is something for everyone in the Big Easy! For easy access to all of the city’s sights and attractions, it is recommended to stay in the Central Business District (CBD), which is essentially downtown New Orleans. The Troubadour is one of the newest hotels in downtown New Orleans and is perfectly situated near the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, the Civic Theater, the CBD’s best shopping, the Superdome and Smoothie King Center, and just a 10 minute walk to the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line that can take you to the Garden District and Uptown neighborhoods.
Since there are so many things to do in New Orleans, we have provided a few recommendations to help you organize the perfect vacation or “bleisure” trip!
In the French Quarter, be sure to check out the many shops selling everything from antiques to Mardi Gras themed apparel. Visit the St. Louis Cathedral at Jackson Square and then head to Cafe Du Monde for their world famous beignets and chicory coffee! Take in the beautiful architecture and views the French Quarter has to offer. For lunch or dinner, try Petit Lion, one of New Orleans’ newest restaurants offering Parisian bistro fare with a touch of New Orleans flair.
While many associate New Orleans with the French Quarter and Bourbon Street, there is so much more to our great city. For a fun-filled afternoon, hop on the St. Charles Avenue trolley and take it to Washington Avenue where you’ll be within a short walk of the Lafayette Cemetery, one of New Orleans’ most scenic and hauntingly beautiful above ground cemeteries. After, walk further down Washington Avenue until you reach Magazine Street. This street has an endless variety of boutique shops, restaurants, and art galleries that will keep you entertained for hours.
New Orleans hosts several world-class museums, such as the National WWII Museum, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Audubon Nature Institute zoo and aquarium, and many more.
