There is so much to do and see in New Orleans. Louisiana is filled with a lot of history and culture, with voodoo, haunted hotels and mansions, plantations, and food. I spent a lot of my time in Baton Rouge, which I may have to do another “adventures” series on. On the other hand, I wanted to show you some things to do in New Orleans. It can definitely get overwhelming with all of the people in the area and luckily for me I had a local show me around. These adventures series are just visual diaries from my experiences.
