Winter vacation with my hubby

Hey dawlins'!

I need a little help. My husband and I LOVE New Orleans, and this will be our second time going. We'll be there from January 8-13 in 2013. We've been on the Steamboat Natchez and walked the French Quartyer, and we ate a TON! Any other places we can visit that aren't so "TOUR-ISTY"?

Also any suggestions for Hotel in the French Quarter but not too far from Bourbon (We're drinkers!)

Thanks a heep mr friends!

I like the Place d'Armes a lot - nice place, fabulous location.

For some less-obviously touristy things:

There are a few historic home tours in the FQ - 1850 House, Gallier House, Bauregard Keyes House, and Herman-Grimma House - I think I spelled those all right.

Backstreet Cultural Museum is great: http://backstreetmuseum.org/

If you like bike tours, Confederacy of Cruisers does a great tour, off the beaten path stuff: http://confederacyofcruisers.com/

Take the ferry over to Algiers Point and check out that neighborhood
