What to Do
The city is still recovering from Mardi Gras which wrapped up on February 12, but we’re already gearing up for
What to Eat
New Orleans is the melting pot of a variety of wonderful cuisines and there is no shortage of fat and calories. Don’t attempt to diet while you’re here. Luckily, we’re in the middle of Crawfish season and crawfish is low in fat and contains a high proportion of omega-3 fatty acids.
What to Pack
In March, Louisiana is generally sweater weather. It’s cool at night, but don’t be surprised if it gets warm enough during the day for shorts! The Morial Convention Center is long – 1 kilometer long! Wear comfortable walking shoes. If history is any indication, you will make several trips the length of the building each day. Bourbon Street is cleaner than ever these days, but speaking from experience, it is no place for flip-flops or open-toe shoes. Also, we had a very mild winter, so everything is already in bloom. While this means that the Azaleas will be camera worthy, you might also want to pack antihistamines.
Travel in groups and stay in well-traveled areas. New Orleans is like every major metropolitan city in that it has areas where you should not wander alone, especially at night.
