New Orleans Tourist Attractions, French Quarter and Beyond – Guest Reviews

http://bookit.com/us/louisiana/new-orleans/?adid=So_3
New Orleans, Louisiana, also known as the Big Easy or the Crescent City, is a premier travel destination with one-of-a-kind attractions, hotels and events.

From neon-soaked Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras to the festival grounds at Jazz Fest, this city knows how to host a party. And what’s a great party without food? New Orleans knows how to kick it up a notch with Creole and Cajun fare that is world renowned.

I find Louisiana is. Not as hot as Flordia in the summer and very few freezing nights in the winter.?

Great hospitals, plenty of outdoor sports, no traffic and our taxes are not bad.

Louisiana is the new Florida. Haven’t been in NO in about two years, but stats show population growing by leaps and bounds. Rest of state is likely going to have a boom in the next decade.

As to reason for better weather, it is in the middle of the Gulf Stream and gets a lot of heat in the winter from that stream passing by it. In the summer, winds move moisture to north into central and southern US.

Gulf Stream heats southern US and Florida, as well as East Coast and Nova Scotia and then heats northern Europe so it is inhabitable all year round.

Not the place to be in hurricane, but that is not a deterrent to most who live or settle there. Culture is fantastic. Perfect mix of people if you like to meet and know new people. Very friendly too.

Hope the climate info helps and the personal observations didn’t hinder.

(1) Young Wayne Toups, Plays At “Cowgirls” In The Mid 1980′s

A step back in time, another nostalgic memory. “Young” Wayne Toups just starting out at a club called “Cowgirls” located in Scott, Louisiana. Although the club is no more, my transcribed VHS of Wayne Toups music (back in the mid 1980′s) still goes on. Of interest to all that love music, to enjoy and for some to reminisce. Keep in mind we did not have the technology that is current of today’s times.

what type of music comes from french speaking settlers of louisiana?


"Zydeco is a form of American roots or folk music, that evolved from the jure during the late 1800′s call and response vocal music of the black and multiracial French speaking Creoles of south and southwest Louisiana."

"Cajun music, an emblematic music of Louisiana, is rooted in the ballads of the French-speaking Catholics of Canada."

Places to hold baby shower (Louisiana residents only please)?

I am planning a baby shower! I’m hoping to find a nice place within metairie, kenner, or new orleans to hold it. I really just want a place with a room to hold up to 50 guests, and a place which allows me to control the decorating and the food (i don’t like paying ridiculous amounts of money to eat the same kind of food I could cook and bring!).

If you know of any places that would be good to contact, please let me know! As of right now, budget is not an issue.

Every large hotel and many smaller hotels offer meeting/banquet space for rent. There are also stand-alone options like the Jefferson-Orleans (though their minimum is 150 guests): http://jeffersonorleans.com/

You might also consider holding the shower at the Zoo or at City Park, both of which have meeting/banquet facilities, a family-friendly environment, and free parking.
