New Orleans travel tips

1) Think twice before renting a car in New Orleans

You might have some troubles while driving in New Orleans. Streets in central New Orleans are narrow, and one-way roads can mislead you. Moreover, local drivers are not the most decent.

2) Enjoy the food and surroundings of the N7 restaurant in New Orleans

You will anticipate the majesty of the N7 restaurant in New Orleans just walking down the beautiful gardens leading to the entrance. Order smoked mackerel or habanero oysters there. Wine choice is also nice!

3) Travel back in time at Antoine's Restaurant in New Orleans, America's oldest family-run restaurant

When you enter Antoine's Restaurant at 713 St Louis Street in New Orleans, you will feel like you were in the 1800s. Over 180 years, this America's oldest family-run restaurant has passed from generation to generation. Do not leave until you try the Oysters Rockefeller and Pommes de Terre Souffles. An average bill is $35-40 here, a good value for money for the intact interior and delicious cuisine.
