Hi Susan,

I have a daughter in N'orleens. We went down there last week.
Be prepared for cool weather. Even though the temp. up here and in the news says the weather is great, take some warm clothes with you.
We just froze!
the Artsy district in N'orleens is on Magazine St. There are lots of funky galleries and some really great high class galleries there. Also antiques and curiosity
Be mindful of your purse and personal belongings in that territory though.
If you're interested in jazz, the famous Preservation Hall Jazz Band plays in the French Quarter. Gotta get there early, though, the place is really tiny.
There is super music nightly anywhere in the Quarter as well as excellent seafood.
Try to get to the Garden District with it's historic homes and history. It's fun to do via horse and buggy. You can also access by streetcar. This is fun too. They
run often and take you almost anywhere you want to go cheaply. The Natches Paddlewheel boat ride gives a lot of historical tours. don't miss the French Market and
the Farmer's market, drink chicory coffee and eat Binyet's ( sp?) the graveyards are another whole history lesson, but don't go there at twilight or late in the
day. There are some really interesting epitaph's on those ornate grave markers. Another thing to do is a Swamp Tour. The "swamp rats" are excellent and
uproariously funny.
I could go on forever,
Have fun,
