I have a PSA: After a refreshing, simple, laid-back long weekend in New Orleans I have to announce that everyone should try to get the chance to go visit this amazing city at least once. Everything from the southern accents, to the abundance of seafood and all things fried, to the uneven cobblestone sidewalks and warehouses turned new … it all enchanted me.
More to come are some reviews and shots of the restaurants we went to, as long as some of the amazing local cuisines we ate. But for now, I wanted to post some raw, non-edited photos of the French Quarter.
Originally the foundations of New Orleans, the French Quarter was the only piece of the city that existed. The city was switched in the hands of control between the French, Spanish, and Americans and has a ton of culturally significant leftovers to show for it. Including these amazing buildings.
The neighborhood itself is full of art galleries, lively stores and restaurants, and a couple of tourist traps dotted in amongst the gems.
