About two weeks ago, my son and I had a 24 hour adventure in New Orleans. He had won tickets from KROQ… grand prize tickets that included two tickets to see Green Day anywhere in the U.S., airline tickets and a hotel room! Sweet! He decided on New Orleans and having never been I was thrilled!
We landed on a Friday at 3pm, made our way to the hotel then went out to see the city before the concert. We took the streetcars down to the Garden District for some site seeing then headed over for the concert. Green Day put on an amazing show and we got to see Brad Pitt too, who was just a few rows away!
Afterward, we walked back to the hotel where I grabbed my camera then headed out again to Bourbon St. and the French Quarter. We stayed out until 2am, people watching and walking around.
After just a few hours sleep we headed out again, exploring the rest of the city on foot. We got caught in a heavy, warm rainfall while visiting an old cemetery but kept on going until once again we got on a plane at 3pm. Twenty four hours in a city full of treasures, heart, music, art. I can’t wait to go back!
