It’s easy to wander aimlessly through New Orleans with your eyes wide, your mouth agape, and your hand holding someone else’s (or holding your Frommer’s guide). It’s truly unlike any place in the United States, so nearly everything you happen upon will be new and wondrous. It’s equally easy to duck into a restaurant or watering hole, or take a meditative rest on a bench in Jackson Square or along the Mississippi River . . . and end up there for hours. Nothing wrong with that (we encourage it, in fact). But New Orleans has gobs of sites that can’t be missed and countless curious little nooks that shouldn’t be. Our itineraries are designed to help you make the most of your time as you navigate the city.
