On the last day in New Orleans, we had the whole morning & afternoon before we left. Since we didn’t have a clue of what to do, my boyfriend suggested that we took a day tour around. So, we signed up for a tour covering French Quarter, Lower 9th Ward (the area got hit by Katrina), cemetery, and Garden District (the area with houses that still preserved their original French architecture). There are other tours available, such as plantation tour and haunted tour. The plantation tour covered a lot of mansions outside the core New Orleans, thus, requires almost whole day – so we skipped this. The haunted tour is a night walking tour where the guide shows you which sites in New Orleans are believed to be haunted – I had no gut for ghosts story so we skipped this as well 😛

The tour van picked us up from the hotel and some others passenger from different hotels around. First, we circled around French Quarter area with some historic sites. One houses was Clay Shaw‘s house – he was allegedly linked to assassination of President JFK. The tour guide also showed some famous cafe/ bar, such as Jean Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar – the oldest pub in the NOla that is believed to be haunted, DeJavu – where Ellen DeGeneres had her first gig, Cafe Beignet, Cafe Du Monde, The Marigny, and The Praline.
