Introduction: First Trip Without Baby
Ritz Carlton New Orleans
Around New Orleans
One of my wife’s annual work trip happens every fall and I am able to accompany her. This year New Orleans was the destination! I have not been to New Orleans since I was a child and my wife had never been. Plus this would be our first trip without bring our young son with us. Our son was going to stay with grandma for three whole nights (thanks grandma)! We were excited yet sad to take the trip because were looking forward to an adults only trip but we love bringing him along to share in the adventures.
We flew down to New Orleans on Southwest with a quick connection in St.Louis. We then stayed three nights at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans.
We plenty of time to sight see and take excursions!
We spent plenty of time walking the French Quarter.
Sampling the amazing chargrilled oysters and local beer.
Taking part in a Mardi Gras themed parade!
And taking a air boat tour of the bayou!
We also got out of town just in time before Hurricane Nate hit New Orleans!
We flew back home on United with a quick stop in Chicago. We had a good time in New Orleans but agreed we have no desire to return anytime soon. And we were both happy to see our son after the three nights away.
Stay tuned for our review of the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans up next!
