DH and I were lucky enough to go to New Orleans not long before Katrina hit. I haven't been back yet, but am looking forward to a return trip as soon as I am given the chance.

The French Quarter is an amazing place, and it is one of the most fascinating places I have been to thus far. It's just so unique, not only within the United States, but around the world.

We stayed at a hotel within the French Quarter which you can easily get around by walking. The buildings are beautiful, so old with peeling paint and ornate wrought iron railings. There is so much history, you can just feel it.

The food can't be beat; I didn't have a meal that wasn't incredible. Cafe du Monde was a place we had to hit, and no regrets there. There's nothing like a warm beignet covered in powdered sugar...even though you get covered by it too.

The stores are fun; they have everything from antique stores to voodoo stores and everthing in between. Artists display their masterpieces in Jackson Square for an inexpensive, artsy momento.

The nightlife is crazy with the French Quarter's famous Bourbon Street and its bars. Colorful beads are around everyone's necks. You can walk down the street with a foot long Hurricane, sipping (or guzzling) at your leisure.

The French Quarter is one of my favorite places.
