This past spring Max and I had the chance to visit New Orleans. It’s been on my list for awhile now and this charming city did not disappoint. Halfway through, our friends John and Jordan Vickers met up with us and (willingly!) became our unofficial tour guides for the remainder of our time. Even with a very short two and a half day stay, we managed to pack in almost everything we wanted to do, see, eat and drink. Read on for my top picks in this New Orleans city guide:

I am an equal opportunity beignet lover. Fried dough covered in powder sugar washed down with a piping hot cup of coffee? Count me in. With all the options available, a beignet tour of New Orleans was most certainly in order. I’m not here to tell you which beignet was best (it’s FRIED DOUGH covered in POWDER SUGAR – you really can’t go wrong here) but depending on the experience you’re looking for, one spot might suit your fancy over another.
Unless you’re into crazy crowds, getting accosted by drunk people or accidentally stepping in a puddle of lord knows what, I HIGHLY recommend staying off of Bourbon Street at night. Keep the crazy to a minimum and bar hop at a few of these notable joints:
