Do you know how much I adore New Orleans? Not jus a casual love. Seriously there is nothing not to like about NOLA. The people are super friendly and free. The food is super fresh, fried and passionately made. The architecture oozes American history as well as the history of slavery. Louisiana isn’t like other southern states I’ve visited, the blend of Creole, African, French, American vibes all mixed in one makes it one of my favorite cities in the world….so far (I’ve never been to Asia or Australia..do I really wanna go to Antarctica?)
Of course you can party and drink and be who you are in NOLA but you can also just enjoy your beignets and people watch. It’s really what you make it.
This was our second time in New Orleans and this time we were there during Essence Festival which is a three day music + empowerment event filled with the originators like Mary J. Blige to the new school like Teyana Taylor. There were so many things to do we didn’t know what to choose and kind of missed out on some dope events but we know better for next time. We stayed at the stayalfred.com which was super close to the French Quarter and i highly recommend staying here!
Check out all the beauty, magic, laughter, freedom we experienced in New Orleans in my latest video and be sure to share this with anyone you know headed to the Big Easy!
