    I may get the chance to visit New Orleans on the last week of August, but at most I would have 3 full days (checked in Sunday afternoon after a 13 hour trip, leaving on Thursday at 9am).

    Is that enough time for a first time visit of the city?

    I would be staying at a hotel in the French Quarter and moving around on foot, as I don’t intend to rent a car.

    Yes, plenty. Great food and drink. French quarter and hit Frenchmen St, maybe Canal. All a blast.

    That might be too many days!

    It's going to be hot, humid, and smelly. Prepare accordionly.

    I am aware. That’s why the per night rate is under $100 at a Hilton Garden Inn.

    Are you a food guy? You may also want to build up your metabolism. Be kind to the locals, no matter what, because there a quite a number of secret doors in New Orleans if you know the right name.

    Three days are plenty.

    Don't forget to visit the Garden District and Central Grocery for Muffalettas.

    You gotta try a few Hurricanes.

    Just don't look at your poo for a few days.

    Yea, more than enough. It’s a pretty small city and it’s expensive considering right outside of it is the rest of the absolute train wreck of a state called Louisiana.

    It’s really not that bad. Of course if you don’t live here you wouldn’t know. As someone who was born and raised in Florida and moved to Louisiana, trust me, Louisiana is 1000x better than Florida and most of the south. Excluding Texas and Georgia.

    Been to Louisiana twice with the military, both times we flew into Shreveport and it was easily the most depressing place I’ve ever been to. Went to a bar that they had brochures for at the airport in downtown Shreveport called the cub. People asked us if we were in movies and one girl asked me if I was the guy that wrote the Macarena. The city was an absolute ghost town too

    Yea it does, but there’s garbage casinos and strip clubs haha. New Orleans isn’t great honestly, cool in small doses when you’re a young degenerate. Other than that, nothing special

    Frenchmen Street is where you go for music, if you're into absinthe I hang out at a place called Mahogany Jazz Hall where you get private burlesque shows where the dancers pour water over their nipples.

    Foodwise check for any boils, Traceys in the Irish Channel is incredible and an amazing neighborhood, NOLA Poboys on the 900 block of Bourbon has the best poboy in the FQ. Coops place is incredible, but Brennans has the best breakfast in the city imo.

    The Garden District is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the country. Great food and great bars.

    The cemeteries here are gorgeous, so I recommend a tour of St Louis #1.

    We have. A fuckton. Of festivals and parades so check nola.com for events when you're here.

    Whoever told you 3 days is more than enough spent their vacation getting drunk on Bourbon Street.

    In addition to the bar and restaurant scene, I’ve heard that the aquarium is nice and that the WWII museum is cool...
