 Planning an epic Spring Break New Orleans 2023? You’ve clearly got good taste and you’re in good company! New Orleans is actually one of the most popular Spring Break destinations, so you’ll definitely find yourself in a fun atmosphere. Now you need the right advice to make sure you have the best time in the city. From what to pack to where to grab a drink, here is a local’s guide to what you need to know to make it amazing.

Pack For The Weather You Might Encounter in Spring Break New Orleans 2023

The bad news? If you were hoping for an all-sunshine Spring Break New Orleans 2023, you may be disappointed to learn that New Orleans is a notably rainy city. The good news? You’re reading this blog post, so you can be ready. You’ll definitely want to pack a good rain jacket and bring an umbrella. It’s also a good idea to pack layers because you might also get one of New Orleans’ frequent hot and humid days and then find it a bit cold at night. It’s important to pack a comfortable pair of shoes, too. Come prepared so you can enjoy this very walkable city, taking in all of the sights and absorbing the local culture and history of this truly unique place.

Know That The Best Food and Drinks Aren’t Necessarily On Bourbon Street

Bourbon Street, in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter, is famous the world over for its raucous party atmosphere, overflowing with plenty of food and drink. However, even when staying within the French Quarter you might find something a bit more unique and tastier on a different street. For example, the famous Court of Two Sisters is on nearby Royal Street and features jazz brunches, delicious drinks, and may even have experienced a ghost sighting or two. Another spot with delicious food and an awesome courtyard bar is Muriel’s Jackson Square on Chartres street, who also claim their own friendly ghost.

If you venture out a bit further, you can find even more food and drink options, and maybe get some time away from the crowds. If you’re a fan of whisky, consider Barrel Proof, a whisky bar in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District always has an exciting and diverse selection. More of a beer fan? Try Wrong Iron in Mid City, a dog-friendly beer garden with good food, bike parking, and TVs in case you need to keep up with the big game while you’re there. Another recommendation for outdoor drinks and casual eats is The Tchoup Yard on Third Street, another chill place where you’re welcome to bring your dog if your pet is traveling with you. If you don’t limit yourself to the crowded Bourbon Street scene, you can avoid missing out on a lot of local cuisine and drinks worth drinking!

Plan Activities That Are Worth Your Time

There is so much to see and do in New Orleans, so there are a lot of activities vying for your time and attention. You don’t want to get caught up in tourist traps and miss the true beauty of this one-of-a-kind city. At the same time, if you just wander around on your own, you may not know where to start, and you might miss some of the most interesting parts of New Orleans life. 

A great way to get the full New Orleans experience is with a guided walking tour. Depending on what interests you, different themed tours might be the right choice for your Spring Break New Orleans 2023 plan.
