What To Do in New Orleans

My trip to New Orleans last weekend was everything I wanted it to be and more.  It was my first legitimate vacation in almost two years, so it was definitely good to my soul.  My roomie (Kat) and I decided to make a roadtrip out of it, so we left Nashville at an ungodly hour on Thursday morning with a bomb playlist, a bag of dark chocolate and larabars to snack on, and a car-full of excitement.  Eight hours later we arrived in NOLA, and y'all, it became one of my favorite cities real quick.  There is just so much life in that place, with all of the music, food, people, and yes, crazy.  I loved every ounce of it.  I got to eat authentic Cajun and Creole dishes, experience the insanity that is Bourbon Street, explore the French Quarter and Garden District, and I even got to take a little break from the city to explore Oak Alley Plantation, which was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.  I also ate beignets on beignets on beignets... #noregrets.  Kat and I had a really great time and loved (almost) everything we got to experience in the 3 short days we were there.  I already can't wait to go back!  In between all of the photos to follow are some of my recommendations and tips if you ever get the chance to visit New Orleans:
