Subject: To all those heading to NOLA some advice if you have never been. Louisiana is beautiful and the people are wonderful. However, this is really not a city for children. Surprising that it was picked after the Las Vegas backlash a few years ago?? Expect to see everything- I mean everything. Not just on Bourbon Street.... see more inside...

The streets surrounding Bourbon will have plenty of craziness, drunk and half naked people, especially on the weekends. Bourbon street is not a place for kids! Stay on the beaten path especially at night, The crime rate is high and the murder rate just surpassed Chicago, not to be an alarmist, but it is important to be aware of your surroundings at night. There are some sketchy areas. Also be aware that sometimes the Quarter smells, awful. It will be really hot and humid and the smell gets worse as the garbage bags are left out.Sometimes the food is better outside the quarter. Go to the CBD
(Central Business District) to get away from the overpriced tourist restaurants. The tours are fun but go on line to get the best prices. Uber is everywhere but Lyft does not go to the airport and is harder to find. Use the trolley to get to the garden district, worth the trek and the tickets are good for 24 hours. Just be aware that this is a very adult city and unlike any place in the US - it really is not a place for kids at night!
