Where To Stay in New Orleans
When deciding where to stay in New Orleans we first looked at hotels but found Airbnb’s much more affordable. Since we only had 48 hours in New Orleans we wanted to be close to the activities on our agenda.
Day One: Café du Monde, New Orleans Cooking Class, & a Ghost/Vampire Tour
Day Two: The Ruby Slipper, Café Beignet, Tour Treme, & Whitney Plantation
New Orleans Transportation
We rented a car since our Airbnb had a driveway with free parking. We drove to Café Du Monde because were arriving early and knew we would be able to find street parking.
