BEST WESTERN PLUS French Quarter Landmark Hotel
Travel Blogs from New Orleans
After travelling for a couple of days we arrived in New Orleans. A city of all one way streets, thank goodness for GPSs, could have gone around in circles for days to find the motel. The first thing we did was get change and have a dip in the very nice pool, then it was off to do the dreaded washing again.
Bourbon Street, what can …
Rode hard today, one small shower, clear now in New Orleans. Hit famed Bourbon street in New Orleans, well it used to be neat, but definitely past it's prime, very dilapidated buildings, rough roads and now very noisy bars and clubs and the seedy side of our culture for sure, scratch Mardi Gras off my list, been there, done that.
I can't believe that we found a RV resort right in the French Quarter. It was small but very upscale. The RV from Whale Wars, the Sea Shepherd was parked right next to us. We spent the day in the FRench Quarter and had a great dinner. Afterwards we took a nice carriage ride and spent the night wandering up and down Bourbon ...
... trying to find a cool place is virtually impossible, you even sweat in the shade!!!!! We did some laundry, ate some pasta and pesto and then made some new friends, and Dutch guy and an Italian one, more our age and was good to chat to older people again, a little tired of speaking to 18 - 20 year olds now!!!!!
They set up an open mike night, where anyone who feels they have a talent can have a go, a bit like "Britian's Got Talent" ...
... Courthouse, I’m pleased to see some new faces of people who weren’t at last year’s presentation. Some are cousins I haven’t seen in years; others are old schoolmates; others are community members and curious onlookers. In my presentation I share an overview of my genealogy research, my trip to France last year to meet a distant cousin, and some of the new discoveries I’ve made since then.

Great location right on North Rampart, moments from the bars of Bourbon street and great for exploring the french quarter, rooms were lovely and the courtyard pool was nice for cooling down!
