Around this time last year, we attended Valley Fellowship auction, and bid on a couple different vacation packages. We ended up winning a New Orleans vacation package, which included a hotel, tickets to the WWII museum, the Beauregard Keyes House, and dinner at the Chophouse. We went to New Orleans in October. It was Sam's first time and my second time in New Orleans.
The hotel, Old No 77, included in the package was so nice! We loved the modern design and location on the outside of the French Quarter.
We got an early start on Saturday morning and walked to Jackson Square from our hotel. I started feeling dizzy, so we decided to get breakfast to see if that helped me feel better. We ate at Cafe Pontalba because it was close and there wasn't a line. I took this photo inside the restaurant.
After we filled our bellies, we walked around Jackson Square and got lots of pictures of St Louis Cathedral.
We went inside the Cathedral and looked around.
We walked around the French Quarter and did some shopping. I bought this beautiful hat at Goorin Bros.
We spent the next hour walking around and admiring the beautiful architecture and Halloween decorations.
This post is already pretty long, so I'll continue next week with our tour of the Beauregard Keyes House.
Have you ever been to New Orleans? What is your favorite thing to do there?
