One of my absolute favorite places to travel is New Orleans with my girls.

It’s the spot we always feel free to let loose and explore!

I have been dreaming of New Orleans for the past few months – so I was excited to bring a piece of it into the new house for a staycation!


THE GIRLS TRIP GUIDE

Explore the French Quarter

Walking around you can easily find tons of local crafts, palm readings, cajun food restaurants, bars, and colorful buildings!

Also, ride the streetcars – this is a super affordable way to explore different parts of the city you may not get to otherwise!


THE GIRLS TRIP GUIDE

Visit the St. Louis cathedral

This cathedral is literally jaw dropping, and is open to the public daily.

Try visiting during a performance or schedule a tour!

Join the Second Line Parade

This is a local cultural tradition that brings life into New Orleans with jazz and dancing in the streets! You can usually catch them Sunday afternoons in the French Quarter!
