Wife and I are celebrating completing a 60 day juice fast by endulging with all that New Orleans has to offer. Booked a room at the Hotel Villa Convento in the FQ but I only have a few questions.
Since we're going to be there in July (which I understand it rains), does it rain enough that we need to pack jackets and warm clothes or should we not even bother?
I've read and read most threads and have seen some comments that state "we felt safe down this street" as to note that in some areas safety is an issue. Can we walk around with our camera or should we be concerned?
Are taxis pretty common? I imagine we're going to need a taxi from the airport to the hotel and back..or should we just spring for the rental?
Lastly, i've read that some places actually close down because it's out of Oyster Season. Will we be experiencing a lot of closures in July because of this?
Thanks in advance for any replies
