What type of things do you and your sister like to do? There's really a lot of bars in the area because of Loyola and Tulane. Some of trendy, some are famous "dives." They're tucked in all kinds of areas. Lots of great restaurants, too. Plus, there's great shopping, coffee shops, antique/thrift stores on Magazine St. I personally LOVE the Uptown area!

Let us know and we can help direct you. It's a great area!!

Take the St Charles streetcar a few minutes to the east and get off at Washington Street to take a self-guided tour to see some beautiful Garden District houses:

IF you take on the six mile long Magazine st....with its 60 restaurants/cafe's you could get a bus pass and keep utilizing the #57 bus as the street is long.
