Quick Getaway to New Orleans

Sometimes, in December, Jason and I have to take a quick trip to earn those last few miles Jason needs to keep his status with American Airlines.  This year, we decided on New Orleans!  I've never been and I love jazz music, so I just couldn't wait!  It really was everything I expected.  Great food, great music, beautiful architecture, friendly people, lots of fun!  The only thing we didn't expect was that there really isn't much to do during the day.  It was a little too cold to do a swamp tour or anything like that, so we pretty much exhausted anything else to do.

Here are lots of videos of great bands and cool bars (where we drank quite a bit).

During the day, we took lots of walks through neighborhoods and parks (and drank a bit).

























And we visited The National WWII Museum on a rainy day, which was surprisingly really cool (and we dried out a bit from all the drinking).




Great food was everywhere, but a highlight was, of course, Commander's Palace.
