Famous Restaurants – such as Antoine’s and Brennan’s – are on my list, as are beignets from the world famous Cafe Du Monde.I’m really in to film photography, so am excited to get my lens on some of the local plantations that surround the city. I plan to spend a good chunk of the day at Nottoway Plantation, which is the largest antebellum mansion in the South. There are several other antebellum properties pinned to my trip board – please check them out and let me know what I’m missing.
In short, I think Pinterest is an awesome way to start conceptualizing a trip – from the route you’re going to take, to what you’ll do once you’re there, to what you’ll be wearing while you do it. And, since I’m going with friends, we can all pin our own inspiration to a shared trip board, creating a more collaborative experience. Because it’s better to have everyone weigh in, rather than leaving it to one person to plan, don’t you think?
What resources do you use to plan your trips? And what tips do you have for me once I’m in New Orleans? Please let me know in the comments below!
