Walking New Orleans: 30 Tours Exploring Historic Neighborhood
30 Tours Exploring Historic Neighborhoods, Waterfront Districts, Culinary and Music Corridors, and Recreational
New Orleans was practically wiped off the map by Hurricane Katrina, but within a decade it has come back in ways that few thought possible. From neighborhoods such as Lakeview and Mid-City to landmarks including the Saenger Theater and Mercedes Benz Superdome, from its restaurants and music clubs to its parks and museums, the Big Easy has regained the title of one of the world’s most fascinating cities.
Walking New Orleans
, lifelong resident and writer Barri Bronston shares the love of her hometown through 30 self-guided tours that range from majestic St. Charles Avenue and funky Magazine Street to Bywater and Faubourg Marigny, two of the city’s “it” neighborhoods. Within each tour, she offers tips on where to eat, drink, dance, and play, for in addition to all the history, culture, and charm that New Orleans has to offer—and there’s plenty—it provides tourists and locals alike with one heck of a good time.
So grab your walking shoes—and this book—and explore the miracle that is New Orleans, a metropolis on the rise, all thanks to the grit and determination of its residents, who refused to let their city die.
