Romantic New Orleans

New Orleans is for lovers. No really. A great nightlife, fantastic live music, dancing at every back alley and bbq joint, swirl that around with an Old World ambiance and you’ve got it made in the shade, my friend. Whether you want to stroll through the moss-covered oaks, listen to saxophone brass while the muddy Mississippi roles by, or just do some candlelight dining, New Orleans is the place for love.

The romantic restaurants that fill this city could alone fill a book. It’s the charm of a place alongside its food that makes something special. The old Napoleon House where ferns grow out of cracks in the wall has a special blend of something that marries well with New Orleans’s signature sandwich, the Muffaletta, while Susan Spicer’s restaurant, Bayona, has been a hit with New Orleans locals for over two decades now – and that’s saying something.

Touring the city is an adventure for lovers, and special horse-drawn carriage rides can wheel you throughout the French Quarter while personable guides give you the low-down on the area’s deep and rich history. Consider seeing city park and holding hands under hundreds of years old Oak trees, while paddling through the lake alongside the swans. Or get a sense of the quarter at night by just strolling along the levee by Café Du Monde. There’s little like seeing that wide Mississippi river loll by you while the sound of jazz seems to come up through the cattails and riverbank reeds, the warm beignets just beginning to settle in your stomach.
