We stayed 2 nights in New Orleans in the heart of the French Quarter and attempted see as much of the city as possible. We fortunately had great weather and decided to walk everywhere, logging 10+ miles one day going from sight to sight.
As we were in the city on Veterans Day we thought it appropriate to visit the National WWII museum. We spent 4 hours here and unfortunately did not see it all before they closed for the day. We both agreed it was hands down the best museum we had ever been to. It uses a mix of multimedia, artifacts, personal stories, photos, graphics and interactive kiosks to tell the story of WWII and the US’s involvement. Simply put, it was extremely well done.
Randomly our friend Amy Poe from Portland was in New Orleans visiting college friends when we were there so we were able to connect one night. Always fun to see a familiar face!
Safe to say you can walk, eat and drink your way through New Orleans and still not do it all but we sure tried.
