I love New Orleans. It's a city rich in history, culture, great food and wonderful, warm, friendly people.

Be careful of crime in New Orleans, especially at night. However, the native people of New Orleans are some of the friendliest I've ever met.

Visit the French Quarter and then the St. Louis Cathedral. Visit the Bon Ton Cafe for dinner. I also recommend visiting the Natchez river boat and take a dinner cruise. Make sure to get a grenade in the french quarter. Also visit the famous cafe du Monde and get a beignet. If you are interested take in a sex show or other nighttime activities in the old french quarter. A haunted walk or visit to an old cemetery is also recommended. The old french market is another fun place to see for gift and souvenirs.

The friendliness and the wonderful accents of all the people. The cajun food is awesome so please get some gumbo. Also enjoy the wonderful drinks. Take in the wonderful music that you'll find anywhere. This is America's coolest city.
