Welcome back to another month of the Best of the USA where I share one of my favorite locations within the US and invite you to do the same by joining me in my monthly blog hop. You can share about any location, restaurant, hotel, attraction, etc. I just ask that it is in …. you guessed, America.
I have wracked my brains this week trying to determine what I was going to write about. It’s not like I don’t have any ideas. Believe me, I have plenty of ideas and places that I could write about. I’m pretty easy to please and love just about anywhere that I visit. I just have such a hard time narrowing it down and choosing ONE. But I did it. Are you ready?
My Choice for the Best of the USA Blog Hop in June is…
That’s right—New Orleans.
Some may wonder if New Orleans is truly a family friendly destination. I admit, I certainly had my reservations. I’ve since concluded that yes, New Orleans is a beautiful, vibrant city that certainly can be family friendly. And while I found some of NOLA heartbreaking, I also discovered that there is more to New Orleans than the unsavory elements that give it a bad rap.
The historic charm and welcoming staff at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans put me right at ease. And I think the bathroom was large enough to live in. If you’re ever in New Orleans and looking for a place to stay, I can’t recommend this boutique hotel enough.
The cemeteries were among some of my favorite attractions in the city.
The Audubon Zoo had me taking pictures of everything except the animals and the Insectarium is the perfect museum for any little boy (or girl) that loves to collect bugs. If you’re not a fan of bugs, don’t let the name scare you away, you’ll find more than creepy crawlies at this popular attraction.
Stepping inside the gates of the New Orleans Katrina Memorial was surreal and touching.
And just so you know, the Louisiana Pizza Kitchen, across the street from the French Market, has the best Red Beans and Rice that I have ever eaten. I may need to visit the city again just so I can eat those beans….
