Today our Wanderlust Wednesday is one of the most colorful cities in the world, NOLA! New Orleans has such a cool, eclectic, artistic vibe that is unlike any other. The history and culture are so unique and when I travelled to New Orleans last summer, I instantly felt like I was in a cool European city but mixed in with lots of daiquiris and delicious cajun food!
There is SO much to do in New Orleans, it is pretty hard to pick and choose. Of course there is Mardi Gras, which is every year and I have yet to go, but it sounds incredible! Also there are tons of food and musical festivals yearly which can all be found here!
Luckily when I went to Nola last year, a good friend Maggie was our "local tour guide" since she and her family are from Gretna, right outside of New Orleans. Here are some of the spots we checked out, hope you enjoy this mental Nola escape!
