Four Days in New Orleans: A Brief Itinerary for the 20-Something Traveler

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I went to New Orleans for the first time this year and had a blast! The food, the drinks, the music—all made for a great vacation. I spent a ridiculous amount of time stalking lists and articles and every Pinterest pin under the sun to make sure J and I saw everything, ate everything, and of course, drank every flavor of Daiquiri on the planet. Looking back, I would give myself this piece of advice for NOLA: Relax, eat great food, and listen to as much live music as possible. If you’re planning a New Orleans adventure, feel free to pick and choose from my four-day itinerary. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

  • Drink water!
  • Don’t accept anything from anyone offering in the street or answer when anyone asks where you got your shoes from
  • Use the bus system to your advantage-you can buy bus passes at local places like Walgreens
  • Bring tips for the street performers
  • Take time to relax and truly enjoy NOLA and all it has to offer

Keep on the sunny side
