New Orleans

Our first trip to the Big Easy and we're staying at a great location only a few blocks from the French Quarter. It's called the French Quarter RV Resort. New and very well done but pricey at around $70 but they accept Passport America for one night.

Welcome to the BIG EASY. The French Quarter RV Resort is very, very nice. And very convenient to all of the down town attractions. Just be careful of where you go especially after dark. Stay on main streets do not take any short cuts. Be aware of what is going on around you at all time. Hope you have a good experience and enjoy yourself in our city.

Thanks much for the welcome. We're really growing fond of your wonderful city. Quite a fairytale story with the Saints. Gotta love the spirit.

I've been suffering from the Bourbon St flu today but feeling better by the hour so I can answer the bell again tonight...

Thanks too for the advice on safety. Big cities are big cities.

What you need is the "Hair of the Dog That Bit You". If you can't hang with the Big Dogs you have to get off the Porch. You have to try harder to be a " WHO-DAT". And remember more than 2 people walking in a row is a Parade.

Turns out that you were right about the hair from that dog. DW dragged my butt down to the Riverwalk to shop this pm. Cheeseburger, fries and two cold beers did the trick. Problem is, so many dogs bit me last night I couldn't find enough hair but it helped a lot!

That is why there are so many short hair dogs around here. To many mornings after. Have a good time.

Yes, New Orleans is very unique. Probably the most great eateries in the country. Very similar in composition to San Francisco yet with an entirely different make up of peoples that "made" N.O.. Yugoslavs, Czechs, Italians, plus the Creoles and a bit of everybody else. Mostly the seafood industry was developed by the slavik people. Viscovich, Popich, Jurrisich.... all well known names in N.O. HOWEVER, crowned with 4 generations of welfare recipients has done nothing to aleviate the crime rate, which is rampant. But I still love it, too. Lived there for over 17 years.

We stayed at St Bernard a couple of nights last fall and I would recommend. Nice level parking on asphalt and the spaces are pretty far apart.

To get to the French Quarter, we took the free ferry across. Of course parking was not free.
