I lived in New Orleans for two years. It’s one of those cities that great to visit but hard to live in, especially if you have obligations like a school or a job.
It remains one of my favorite places on earth.
Anxious Love will be the first of many (I hope) novels set in New Orleans. The city is a character in itself and it main character trait is found in the French Quarter.
Top 5 coolest things to do in the French Quarter:
- People watch in Jackson Square.
- Eat at Acme Oyster House.
- Ride the river front street car down the Mississippi River.
- Listen to jazz at the Preservation Hall.
- Take a book tour and see where Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote wrote.
This list could have been 100 items long. These are just the highlights.
Have you been to New Orleans?

No, but I want to! Blogger buddy Roland Yeomans lives there, and between his blog and his books (most of which are set in New Orleans) it sounds like a mystical and colorful place.
No but I’d love to visit. In my mind its filled with colour, music and an enjoyment of life. Let me know if I’m totally wrong 🙂 I really love the layout of this blog. Thanks for sharing a great post and thank you for visiting my blog today. Great to ‘meet’ you!
It has a lot of mystery to the place and the people have a lot of pride in their city.
Yes. I stayed for a week in college. It was a school sponsored trip and I received credits. People made assumptions that it was a drinking class. No. The rich beauty and history of New Orleans is captivating. I hope to return.
Either people think it’s a party place or only think of hurricane Katrina. I this a fascinating place to me.
Yes, it is magical.
Yes, I visited New Orleans for a week (before hurricane Katrina). I ate my first crawfish and loved it, so I had some each day… crawfish gumbo, crawfish pie, crawfish ravioli (my favorite)…
I loved the architecture there, and wandered for hours looking at various buildings and homes. And enjoyed riding the streetcars.
Hey Trudy. I always ride the street car both in the Quarter and in the Garden District.
