Make sure if you go to New Orleans that you visit the Garden District. You can hop on the St Charles Streetcar and enjoy the view as you go. Three dollars will get you an all day pass for any of the streetcars in New Orleans. Make sure you have exact change. Stroll through the streets and marvel at the nineteenth century houses. Be careful of the sidewalks. They are lifted in some spots from the flooding due to the hurricane. I love the beads hanging from the trees.
