We enjoyed a quick day-and-a-half detour through New Orleans on our way home from the beach this summer. Highlights included a flight of beer at the unbeatable NOLA Brewing, racks on racks of vinyl at Louisiana Music Factory, French 75s at Arnaud's, and sunny walks through the French Quarter, Marigny, and the Garden District.
Heading south to NOLA soon? Here's where I drew some inspiration for my trip:
