One Fine Day is a series inspired by my favorite now-defunct Chicago Tribune column of the same title. The posts in this series are short, sweet, sometimes themed, and always a charming snapshot of a city.
When it comes to New Orleans, there’s a lot to see and do. Depending on your interests (and how many Hurricanes you’re looking forward to knocking back), this might not be an ideal day for you. But for me, it was perfect.
Before you get too far into your day, purchase an all-day public transportation pass. For $3 you’ll be able to take as many streetcar or bus rides as your heart desires (and your adventures warrant).
Start your morning off with a delectable breakfast and much-needed caffeine jolt at District: Donuts. Sliders. Brews. With a full belly head out onto Magazine Street to explore some of the area’s small shops and marvel at the city’s oldest mansions.
