New Orleans travel tips

1) Pay attention to the less popular (but no less interesting) murals in New Orleans

If you want to see a favourite place of local creative youth, head to the awesome Studio Be in New Orleans. Admire the floor-to-ceiling bright portraits at this abandoned warehouse. Mosty, it hosts the works of the popular local artist BMike (AKA Brandon Odums).

2) Try the alligator meat at the French Market in New Orleans

Go to the French Market at 1008 Peters Street in New Orleans. The fried alligator meat is the main gem here. Locals advise no to hurry with purchases but to monitor the prices; different retailers may have different prices on the same goods here.

3) Have a relaxed walk and feed the ducks at Louis Armstrong Park in New Orleans

Head to 701 N Rampart Street in New Orleans to walk around the secluded Louis Armstrong Park. The 13-hectare park is filled with sculptures, duck ponds, water features, and plenty of tributes to Amstrong and other musicians. Bring some bread with you, sit down on the grass and seclude with your thoughts feeding ducks.
