My best friend Mary went with me to New Orleans for a fun-filled stag weekend! I won’t be getting married until 2022, but with the way things go it seemed as good a time as any to head off on a trip together and see NOLA. It was a bucket list location for both of us, since neither of us had been before and we got up to a lot in a small amount of time!
The photos in this post were all shared on my Instagram account and here are the spots we visited in the video of our trip, which I uploaded to my YouTube channel: Higgins Hotel, Cafe Du Monde, French Market, Court of Two Sisters, Historic New Orleans Collection, Oz, Royal Carriages, Vampire Cafe, Historic Voodoo Museum, Moonwalk Riverfront, Garden District, Molly’s Rise & Shine, Ghost of New Orleans Tour, Bourbon Street, and the Clover Grill.
We had such a fun time in New Orleans and it really didn’t disappoint despite our high expectations. We both already know we want to go back to see more of it… we covered a lot while we were there, but a city like this still has way more to offer! And going with my best friend really made this trip stand out a special one to remember, that’s for sure.
You’ll get the best feel for how our trip was by watching the video at the top of this post, which is also airing on Canada’s national LGBTQ TV station OUTtv! It’s running in high rotation between regular programming for their 1.2 Canadian million viewers so those people can consider it as a destination that they might want to visit as well!
