We had just finished wandering through the French Market, and were heading to lunch, when we stopped to talk to one of the NOLA visitor center guides. He told us about the New Orleans City Tour, and we decided to take it, but while we did get to go to a cemetery, it was closing for the day, by the time we got to the Garden District, it was getting dark. Our guide was from New Orleans and I think we more than likely spent time driving around his neighborhood. We spent a lot of time seeing shotgun houses, but for anyone who lives in the south, these are a not a hot item. We did have one stop at the city park, which was beautiful, but because we had no map, we had no reference to where we were. Next time, we will go to the Museum of Art and the botanical gardens, go back to the WWII museum and the Civil War museum. I guess though that we wouldn't have known about some of the things to do, unless we had taken the tour. Looks like another trip to New Orleans will be in our future.
