I enjoyed four wonderful days in the beautiful New Orleans during St. Patty’s day weekend…and I’m still alive to tell the tale! Here is a recap of my trip and all of the amazing places I experienced. NOLA isn’t just about the party…
THE HOTEL: MAGNOLIA MANSION
This place is a hidden gem! Right around the corner from the American Horror story “Coven” house, Magnolia Mansion will blow you away. It has insanely high ceilings, claw foot tubs, four post beds, and decor that will make you feel like royalty!
You absolutely must have Shea moisture bubble bath, Davines Nou Nou shampoo & conditioner travel packs, and Burt’s Bee’s cleansing cloths when bathing in this gorgeous tub!
THE PARTY SCENE: MAGAZINE STREET
Just a few blocks parallel from out hotel we stumbled upon a crazy St Patty’s day parade. Now typically when you think of NOLA parades you think of beads galore. During St. Patty’s it’s beads plus cabbages, carrots, and even uncooked Ramen noodles! I literally was attacked by two uncooked packs of Ramen and it was hilarious.
EAT!!: From carousel spinning bars and awesome artwork, the ambiance of each restaurant was too cool!
The best way to see the city of New Orleans is definitely by scooter! Nina and I zipped around on these bad boys for two days. Reserve your scooter fun here!
I will def be back to New Orleans! The people, music, and historic culture are all so beautiful and inspiring!
