My Trip to New Orleans
I recently took a three-day trip to New Orleans, and I feel like I was able to see and do everything on my list. Here’s a breakdown of my itinerary:
I arrived in New Orleans in the afternoon, and after a short Uber ride from the airport, I checked into my hotel. I stayed at the Luke Hotel, which had a great happy hour where I enjoyed some delicious fried oysters. Normally, I’m not a fan of raw oysters, but the fried ones were amazing! My friend, who loves raw oysters, also thought the classic version was really good, but she didn’t like the fried version as much.
After dinner, we took a stroll through the French Quarter and visited Jackson Square. There was an older woman doing tarot readings, so we tried it out for $30 each.
We had originally booked a tour of Oak Alley Plantation and an alligator swamp tour, but unfortunately, our driver had an accident, so our plans got canceled. We decided to try Red Slipper for brunch, and while I thought it was just okay, my friend complained that it was too sweet. We then walked to the World War II Museum, which was really big and had a 4D movie experience that was worth the price of admission. They give you an identity card to follow one person’s story, but it was just okay, especially for us non-history buffs.
In the evening, we went to Cafe Du Monde, which is famous for its beignets. I thought they were very Chinese, but still delicious, although they did get a bit sickly sweet after eating too many. For dinner, we went to Acme, where the oysters were just average, but the crawfish rice bowl was pretty good.
Since our tour got canceled the previous day, we booked a swamp tour and Oak Alley Plantation tour separately. I’d recommend taking a shuttle from the swamp tour company instead of driving yourself, and definitely don’t drive to the plantation as it’s hard to get back without transportation.
I felt like we didn’t need to spend too much time at Oak Alley Plantation since it was mainly photo-taking and listening to the guide, so we headed back early. For dinner, we finally made it to Felix’s, where we tried their garlic oysters, which were delicious. After dinner, we went to Preservation Hall to listen to jazz music, which was amazing.
I’d say Luke was my favorite restaurant in terms of service and food quality, with Acme and Felix being tied for second place. As for drinks, I tried the famous local drink, Bloody Mary, but I didn’t enjoy it. However, we did buy some green bottles of alcohol that many people carried around on the streets, and they were quite tasty.
