I have wanted to go to New Orleans for a few years now and after just fishing the 1st series of Treme (we're a bit behind in the uk) I would like to get this booked up soon.
However my girlfriend is not so keen, questioning the safety of the city.
I have lived in the states and since moving back have been on holiday to quite a few cities, my thinking is New Orleans is the same as any other city.
Use your street smarts and always know where you're going and how to get back.
My question to those who live there or have visited there recently, would you recommend it and if so, what time of year would you say is best?
I am thinking of incorporating New Orleans into a 2/3 location vacation so any ideas of other places I can consider would be appreciated.
