Travel Tips

Things to know before travelling to New Orleans

Enjoy the uniqueness that only New Orleans offers. There is no other city like it.

First, do not wear a dark suit to Café du Monde.

The famous bakery in the French Quarter, rightly, attracts tens of thousands of visitors. Louisiana-style beignets are made from leavened dough (as opposed to yeast dough used in France). The powdered sugar from a beignet is best consumed, not worn. Trust me…

Next, eat right at Acme Oyster House.

Conveniently located in the Quarter, Acme Oyster is a must for NOLA visitors. Countless tourists had their first raw oyster here after swearing to never eat one. Try the char-grilled oysters with hot sauce, cooled off with an Abita Turbodog. Live like a local!

Finally, dare to be scared!

Check out Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar. Built between 1722 and 1732 Lafitte’s is reputed to be the oldest structure used as a bar in the United States. Lafitte’s is considered to be one of the most haunted places in New Orleans. In this town, that actually means something!
