    Had an absolute blast!

    New Orleans is a very beautiful city full of wonderful people. I walked around pretty much all day every day for five days straight and found something new to do every day. There is always something to do or something to see if you're the type to just want to discover new things. I walked around Bourbon and the French Quarter, made it to the Garden District, zoo, aquarium, right by the river, and so many more places. This city just has an amazing energy that you can feel.

    Insider Tip:Take public transportation and walk around, it's more cost effective than taxis, hop on/hop off tour buses or driving. There are daily unlimited passes that are cheap, or you can get a 3 day, 5 day, or 31 day Jazzy Pass. Totally worth it.

    All Day Partying

    I would suggest not necessarily spending all your time on Bourbon street; it's always crowded, smells bad, and doesn't have any attractions except for bars, really. The trolleys are pretty awesome and there's a lot of great history to the city if you have the time to check out more than just the French Quarter. Best tourist area would have to be the French Market... there were tons of local shops and some great places to eat. Plus it's just by the water.

    Insider Tip:Take a short trip to the end of the French Quarter to visit the Allways Lounge. There are some great cabaret shows and it's only a 15 minute walk from the rest of the high spots in the French Quarter.

    Different ... In a good way!!

    I just have a love for this city! It's so different than any other place you can visit in the States! So much culture! Please make New Orleans a part of your trip - you will be happy you did!

USA: Itinerary

Just north of the Mexican border, San Diego is the most laid back of California’s big cities and a great place to simply chill out. Situated on a bay, there are many places to laze about in during the day. It is also a compact grid meaning getting around is easy as pie.
