Top 10 Places To Visit While In New Orleans

New Orleans, being the largest state in Louisiana, is filled with bright and lively music and cajun celebration all year long. New Orleans is also known for the distinct voodoo presence throughout the city. Mardi Gras though is one of the biggest drawing points to the city, but after seeing these places, you will see why there is so much more to the city than that.

House Of Blues

The House of Blues has a lot to offer with its live music and southern hospitality inspired menu.

Audubon Aquarium of the Americas

Is it really a vacation if you don't visit either an aquarium or a zoo? This aquarium has so many memories with me from when I was a kid, hopefully, it will create just as many memories for you too.

Bourbon Street

You can't just visit one place on Bourbon Street you really have to see it all! Some of my favorites on Bourbon Street are the House of Voodoo and the World Famous Cats Meow.

Brennan's Restaurant

brennansneworleans.com

Known for it's insta-famous pink exterior wall you will see in person the elegant tones the interior has to offer as well.

Court of Two Sisters

This place is just as insta-famous as Brennans. The outside courtyard has a gorgeous fountain for pictures as well as the indoor terrace.

AHS Coven House

Me being an American Horror Story fan, I obviously had to include this gram worthy house.

Cafe Beignet Royal

Did you really go to New Orleans if you didn't try a beignet?

Marie Laveau's Tomb

The queen of voodoo is buried right there in New Orleans. Legend has it, if you visit the grave and leave a single red rose it will bring you luck and prosperity.

Bloody Mary's Haunted Museum

For all you paranormal fans, this place is definitely for you! They have seances and physic readings available, if you're into that.

St. Louis Cathedral

Probably one of the most visited places in New Orleans, it is in the heart of the French Quarter. Which, just so you know, the French Quarter is the best spot for pictures.

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
