Beyond the Quarter: The Perfect Day in New Orleans – Intelligent Travel: The 21st century granted two of�New Orleans‘ historic 19th-century working-class neighborhoods a new lease on life.
Located downriver from the French Quarter and filled with Creole architecture, the Faubourg Marigny and Bywater’s grace-and-grit attracted artists, gays, and iconoclasts fond of doing things their own way. (Case in point: the local Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus‘s�sci-fi-themed Mardi Gras parade.)
My prescription for the perfect day along the Mississip:
Press Street Station: Begin the day with a plate of eggs, toast, creamy grits, coconut pancakes, and slow drip coffee at a new bistro that’s part of the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA).
