New Orleans Guide

Posting Access:
Anybody , Moderated
This community is to collect information about New Orleans. If you've been there, lived there, whatever, you can list places to go, things to do, things to avoid. Anything that can help out visitors to the city.

I've also "stolen" a trick from one of the other communities. Any posts that reference things to do (or places to eat, etc.) will be added to the memories of the community.

In an effort to provide as much information as possible, I strongly encourage members to also check out these two communities: neworleans and noladarkside. Please review and adhere to the respective community guidelines when posting.
