This past weekend, we headed to New Orleans with two of our favorite people. It was a fast but fantastically fun weekend. I love that Tallahassee is centrally located and mostly everything in the south is in a 5 hour radius. It makes for quick weekend trips.
This was our first trip to New Orleans. So I had very little expectations as to what the city would be like. Other than being known for its debauchery and Hurricane Katrina, I knew nothing about the area. We stayed at the Astor Crowne Plaza, which centrally located on Bourbon and Canal. We spent most of our time exploring the city, doing a ghost and cemetery tour, and checking out some local bars.
