Guide: New Orleans in 72 Hours

Places to Eat:
– Cafe Du Monde (for beignets and cafe au lait, obviously)
– Dragos (dinner) – Known for it’s charbroiled oysters (even if you don’t like them, I highly recommend trying)
– King Fish (dinner)

Places to Eat:
– Court of Two Sisters (brunch)
– Copper Monkey (off of Bourbon St., late night meal)
– Camellia Grill (breakfast)

Where to Stay:
– Loews Hotel
– The Royal Sonesta

I highly recommend using sites such as Groupon or LivingSocial to book tours. During my short stay, I was able to take a swamp tour for all of $10 and a cemetery tour for all of $7. Sites like these offer an array of tours and things to do at such an affordable price that your most difficult decision will be choosing what to do!
