48 Hours in  New Orleans (What To Do,  Eat, & See)

On Day 1, we ate at: - Cafe Du Monde for the beignettes at breakfast - Lunch at Verti Marte for the Po Boy - Coop's Place for dinner; the fried chicken with red beans & rice was AMAZING! -

On Day 1, we: - Strolled around the French Market - Visited St. Louis Cathedral which is absolutely beautiful - Strolled Jackson Square/Royal St. for some of the best street music

To end the day, we took a nap (because the NOLA Nightlife Scene is no joke) and went to The Spotted Cat Music Club for music and drinks. Apparently they get some well-known acts, so check the schedule and see who's there when you're in New Orleans!

On Day 2, we ate at: - Court of Two Sisters for brunch, and it was THE BEST (jazz brunch + a brunch buffet) - Cafe Du Monde, round 2 - Tujague's for dinner... my husband raved about the seafood meal he got + I loved my beef brisket

On Day 2, we: were supposed to go on a Cemetery Tour, but we got there 7 minutes late and it had left, so we went to the Aquarium instead. It was fantastic!

Our evening plans didn't pan out because our flight the next day was canceled and we spent the evening finding new flights and getting ready to fly out bright and early the next day. We loved everything we were able to fit into our whirlwind trip!
