LAST UPDATE / August 28, 2016

New Orleans has an undeniable charm and a unique energy. The people are the most friendly, the architecture is gorgeous, the food is beyond delicious and the mood is almost always merry. Gets harder and harder to leave this place each time. Nola is one of my favorite cities in the world, here's why ...

COOL DIGS

The Ace Hotel is a handsome stay right in the heart of the CBD District. And the friendly, young, cool staff provided great service and recommendations for events around town. It's a little removed from the French Quarter. Not a problem if you don't mind a short walk or an Uber ride.

DELICIOUS BITES

You have to try to not eat well in this great city. These sandwiches, pho and Cajun food are a good place to start.

HISTORY LESSONS

You come away having learned a history of the property as a sugar plantation, the Stewart Family who ran it and the history of the African slaves that worked for them. The artifacts and background relating to the slave experience were completely overwhelming.
