The convention is two weeks away! By now, you’ve hopefully completed registration, booked your hotel, and arranged transportation. If you’re anything like me, though, you still may not know exactly what to expect. I have to admit that one of the huge draws for me to go to the convention this year was that it’s in New Orleans. In my short 30 years, I’ve managed to travel to 44 of the 50 U.S. states. Louisiana has not been one of them. It’s always alluded me, dodging the interstates and airports I’ve passed through. That’s why I jumped at the chance to head south and get my number 45.
Perhaps you’re new in town like me. You’re not sure what sights and smells and tastes to take in while in New Orleans. We need your help, locals. Tell us where you go. Where do you meet your friends on the weekends? Where do you go for the “perfect” meal? Which park do you take your family to for a day outside? What hidden treasures give New Orleans the life and flare it’s known for?
