John and Angela will be heading back to New Orleans on Sunday.  We'd love to show you around!



Jazz Fest

It's festival season in Louisiana and one of the biggest is the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival from April 24 - May 3. The city will sell out, so if you're planning to come, start looking for a room now.

Elton John, The Who, Jimmy Buffet (a Jazz Fest regular), Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, No Doubt, Lenny Kravitz,  Keith Urban, Pitbull,  John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Hozier, Trombone Shorty, Widespread Panic,  Wilco,  and many more.

French Quarter

John and Angela live in the historic French Quarter and you'll be surprised to know there's a festival. The French Quarter Festival is from April 9 - 12. It's a smaller affair than the other two music festivals in April, but it's great fun. Live shows on several stages throughout the Quarter. It's a free, outdoor music festival and the city isn't nearly as packed. 

Wandering the Quarter is fun no matter what time of year it is. Well, maybe not in summer.


Lafayette is the heart of Acadiana, the Cajun country.  So, you'll get better Cajun food there than in New Orleans. But the New Orleans cuisine is fabulous, too. Here are some of our favorites.
