We didn’t get mugged in New Orleans. On October 1 my wife Shauna and I flew to New Orleans for a week long vacation. Before we left many people warned us to be careful and don’t go down any dark alleys alone. We stayed at a timeshare in the French Quarter. We had gotten a letter that said that there was no place to park at our facility so we decided to only rent a car for a couple of days. Since we were in the French Quarter we walked nearly everywhere we went. We loved the street entertainers, the music, art galleries, and especially the food. We didn’t have a bad meal. New Orleans is very much alive with creativity. The highlights of our trip were going to Jackson Square, Café du Monde, the Charles St. Streetcar, the French Market, and we found that we were more Royal Street than Bourbon Street people. When we did rent a car we went to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for lunch which was beautiful. One day when we had the car we also went to the Laura and Oak Alley Plantations. We loved New Orleans!!! We would go back again in a heartbeat. The best part of New Orleans is the people. They are very down to earth and friendly. We felt the Southern Hospitality and best of all we didn’t get mugged in New Orleans.
