My birthday celebrations in New Orleans!

Birthdays, if you ask me, are best celebrated with best friends or in New Orleans. I was lucky to celebrate my 35th birthday in New Orleans with my husband and I had a blast. The only thing that could have made it better was to have my best friends come along with us. 

New Orleans, also lovingly referred to as 'The Big Easy', is a very charming and colorful place full of life, music and creativity and I absolutely loved it. It was a city I have wanted to visit for a while and I am so glad I did it for my birthday. It is full of talented artists where every street corner comes alive with the sounds of drum beats and guitar strings. The place is magical and inspiring. Even if you are not into music, you can't but play to its beat. You can't but stop and admire the energy and creativity that is flowing all around you. I would easily rank it among the top 3 cities in the US one must visit alongside New York and Washington DC.

Our favorite eats in New Orleans

I was lucky to celebrate my 35th birthday in New Orleans with my husband and I had a blast. New Orleans, also lovingly referred to as 'The Big Easy', is a very charming and colorful place full of life, music and creativity and I absolutely loved it. With all its music and art scene, New Orleans is a treat to the eyes and the ears. But it doesn't stop there. It has excellent food to go with it, making it a sought-after destination. 

Here, I want to share with you some of our favorite eats in New Orleans.

The best way to start your day is with coffee and beignets from Cafe Du Monde at Jackson Square. The place is huge but they only serve coffee and beignets and have super long lines in the morning. But it is a lively place with enthusiastic tourists and powdered sugar from the beignets sprinkled all over, with street musicians playing at the front, and is worth the wait in the queue. Given that you will be spending most of your mornings at Jackson Square, this is a no-brainer.
