Howdy friends, so Monday was our wedding anniversary and I wanted to surprise Travis with something special. Just like the way he surprised me with a trip to Houston for Valentine’s Day. You can read about that dream here. We don’t really have the time to go anywhere extravagant or exotic for that matter. So I figured, why not a night out in our own backyard so to speak. We live 45 minutes from New Orleans, a magical, mystical, hot mess of a city. LITERALLY. So why not tour like a tourist in our home state.
I wanted this trip to be different, I didn’t want to stay at a Hilton, Hampton Inn, or any other generic hotel. I found some place magical. It’s called Hotel Royal. An 1827 creole townhouse on the corner of Royal Street, one block from Bourbon. Above is a shot of me by in the courtyard.
We had a deluxe balcony room.
One of our views.
We spent the day walking around and squeezed in some shopping of course. Don’t forget who’s writing here. 🙂 I could shop 24/7
We saw tons of beautiful art and stopped in a few local shops and boutiques.
There are SO many wonderful places to eat that I feel silly even making suggestions. We stopped in at the following places…
I hope you have a fabulous night my dear. Thanks for reading and if ever given the opportunity to visit the Big Easy, you must do so!
until next time,
stay cute, stay sweet.
