I will be in NOLA for one day in October and have a lon list of things I want to do. I know I cannot physically do them all in one day. I just want a taste and plan to return but want to but want to make most of my visit. I need suggestions of what to pass up and what to definitley see.
Cemetery tour or on our own? I am a photo buff but do not want to get mugged or miss out on all of the historic info. do I take a tour and then go explore on our own? Which is the best cemetery?
Tour of lower 9th ward? Found a non-profit that offers tours.
Algiers ferry to see the skyline of NOLA?
Listen to Zydeco?
Pick up some street art in NOLA?
What are the best souvenirs? Are the beads like the $1 store cheapies? Where is the best place for a voodoo doll?
Here are some finer details...We want to have a decent cocktail and a decent meal without breaking the bank. Who has the best happy hours?
I would rather use public transportation but can the streetcar get me to where I need to get to?
I live in an old house with antiques, so I do not want to pay to see and old house with old things. I would rather spend the money on a worthwhile tour or food and drinks.
I may sound pickey but since I am so limited I want to get more bang for my buck.
Any suggestions or recommendations would be great.
