    Really felt like I was just living in Joe and Flo's home.
    It is about 15 minutes from Bourbon Street and the rest of the action in a quiet part of town. Close to a couple of really great places to eat (Lil Dizzy's and Cajun Seafoods). Across the highway at night is a little sketchy but no real issues. The rooms are generously sized and comfortably air conditioned. Small common areas and quite a small population of stayers meant the place was nice and quiet. Though they do have 24 hour access and always someone a phonecall away for the night owls. Staff were super friendly and helpful in organising tours and suggesting places to hang out.
    Would definitely recommend, gives you a little escape from the hoopla of Bourbon without being isolated.

    ... after about 30 minutes of cruising at altitude, I happened to glance out of the window and had to shake Stacey awake. Right below our window was the most incredible sight - the Grand Canyon, in all its splendour sprawled out underneath us, stretching for miles in every direction. Dome the height we were flying at, we could still see all of the crevices in the rocks and the changing colours created by the light and shade. However, we also had the added beauty of ...

    ... Street and were kindly met with beer dripping on our head and puking patrons on the sidewalk. We only entered a few of the gift shops on the strip as we had far too much traveling and not enough money for the drinking desires that seemingly filled the streets. The bar sharks grazed the storefronts holding up signs for “2 for 1” or “Drag Show Tonight.” The upper balconies of the brick Creole style townhomes filled with guests ...

    Today was the big day! We set up an appointment with a local photographer to be photographed around New Orleans for our engagement photos. We didn't get to go into as much of the beautiful french quarter as I would have liked, but we did get some fun shots on the ferry and on a streetcar. It seems fitting since we're traveling.

    Woke up and found a barber shop for Dustin to get his haircut. We met ...

    “Donna.” That’s all she said. She rose. I rose. We shook hands. She left.

    After finding the good doctor’s office telephone number on the trusty internet, I called Donna on Monday. The doctor had not warned Donna of my impending call which I took to be a bad sign. “She’s in a seven hour surgery today,” Donna ...

    ... World. We walked past the homes of Anne Rice, Sandra Bullock, and John Goodman. Our guide was awesome. I highly recommend using Walking Tours by Foot. There is no fee for the tour. You may tip the guide whatever you can afford or nothing at all. When we got back to the hotel the girls and I walked to an antique store we saw on Decatur Street. The furniture in the store was overpriced but the junk outside was awesome! ...
