I was on a solo, four-week, cross-country road trip in 2009 when friends suggested I drive through New Orleans and stay with them in the Treme. I planned to stay one night. ... I stayed five nights, almost didn't get back on the road, finally left ~ and moved here less than a year later. New Orleans is magical and crazy and full of pot holes and Who Dats and beautiful people and amazing music and delicious food ~ and did I say magic?
I have a huge 3-BR house that I enjoy sharing with travelers. The house is two blocks from Magazine Street and two miles from the French Quarter ~ you can't beat the location, but it's on a quiet and charming street. I eat out and go out a lot, so have a pretty extensive list of restaurants, bars, bands, shops, and off-beaten places to see. I am happy to offer suggestions, or stay out of your hair altogether. Mostly, I just want you to have an amazing time in New Orleans. :)
