    New Orleans

    New Orleans is a great place to visit. It has a lot of culture and places to party if that is what you are into. Even if you are not Bourbon street is still interesting to see.

    Insider Tip:Don't go in August thought it was quite hot.

    Amazing!!!

    New Orleans was a blast and incredibly beautiful. I loved it and I look very much forward to returning to this beautiful city.

    Insider Tip:The place to go to for amazing music is Frenchmen st. Also, if you have a vehicle and enjoy great craft beer, then visit the Abita Brewery in Abita Springs, LA only an hour outside of the city.

    Favorite City Ever

    I think NOLA is overlooked as one of the top cities to explore in the USA. I have been to NYC, LA, Vegas, Memphis, Philly, ect but nothing can compare to NOLA. The food, the culture, the atmosphere, the views and the people are all encompassed into one big awesome experience. I've been twice in 10 months, and will definitely be back. Try all the food, explore all the places and get drunk on Bourbon!

    Insider Tip:While waiting for luggage, have someone wait in the long taxi line. The Grenade drinks are as mind blurring as they are rumored to be. Check groupon and foursquare for food deals!

    New Orleans

    I would recommend New Orleans but be warned, it's crazy! and can seem a bit intimidating if you're a female travelling alone (like I was). Still worth a visit, just keep your wits about you and watch out for the lethal cocktails they serve of Bourbon street...

    Insider Tip:Don't stay for more then 2 days if you're on your own and on a budget!

    Nawlins Mardi Gras

    Mardi Gras is crazy and almost anything goes. The parades are fantastic and unlike anything I've ever seen. The food is phenomenal, go to the Gumbo Shop near Jackson Square. Be prepared for both hot and freezing weather!

    Insider Tip:Transport is non-existent so stay close to the French Quarter and parade routes.

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.
