You have to at least try the local fare like red beans and rice, gumbo, jambalaya and étouffée - they are as much a part of NOLA as the jazz. And no meal is complete without pralines and sea salt caramels (try Laura's Candies - the best!).

If you want to tap your feet, go to the Little Tropical Isle on Bourbon St. for the best Cajun bands in town. If you're looking for a great piano bar, try LaFitte's Blacksmith Shop (also on Bourbon St.). Mike Hood is the best piano player in NOLA.

You definitely need to indulge in the tours offered. We took a Haunted History Tour after dark and got to learn about some the spookier places in the city. A cemetery tour is definitely on our to do list for next time.

go on the early tours while most of the city still sleeps! People start to really stir about noon. Or maybe go in the fall time while kids are in school but the weather is still nice.

If you're going to get hand grenades, get the frozen ones so you pace yourself. They are pretty deadly to a lengthy night.

The people we met at the Hotel Monteleone were from out of state and ready to enjoy Mardi Gras. They were looking for a good time and good food. New Orleans provides both!

With such a diverse culinary background New Orleans foster some of the best restaurants and cuisines comparable to anywhere in the world. I ate at several great places but Miyako's really stood out this time because we had a friends mom's birthday party there and she loved the showmanship of the Hibachi Chef Wan!!! Great job and experience!!!!

Take a city tour so you know what to see and what to do, plus it'll give you a sense of the scale of loss that happened during Katrina.

You never know who you will see doing what in N.O. Be careful of scammers, and watch your step, especially after dark. The lively music and freedom of expression in art/dance, etc. makes this a terrific place to peoplewatch.

We used some Restaurant.com certificates to take us off the beaten path to places like Fiorella's, Bourbon Heat, Country Flame Grill. Decent food at decent prices, but expect to wait as its cooked to order. Good things take time.

The people are amazingly friendly and the city has a personality of it's own. NOLA is iconic for a reason and you have to experience it.

What did you enjoy most about bar hopping in New Orleans?

The variety of the places. If you go to Bourbon expecting to find a joint to sit down in and enjoy a drink, you're in the wrong part of town. If that's what you were looking for, go around the corner and down a side street or two and you'll find that. On Bourbon, the party is always moving. So unless you are sitting down in a restaurant to eat, don't expect to find a bar with a lot of seating.

It's great for couples who'd want to go out and have fun together again. The laissez le bon temps roulez attitude, the 24 hour party of great food and wonderful cocktails, along with the the sheer romance of the city and it's French colonial architecture brings you back to the times and the people you were when you first fell in love with each other. N'Orleans has some special magic thet just seems t do that. Like Paris in America!

Because it is so beautiful and there is so much to do! It's big enough where there is something unique around every corner but small enough to be able to walk to everything.

Stay close to the Quarter. You can spend some time walking but you'll see plenty. Take advantage of public transportation. You can buy a day pass for both the buses and the street cars for $3. Taxi fares can be pricey. Use them sparingly.
