Over the holiday break my sweetheart and I enjoyed a night at a high rise hotel on the lakefront (the Marriott Lakeway – I had a Groupon or a Living Social – I can’t remember which…) and we had a beautiful view of the NOLA skyline as the sun came up. A perfect start to the holiday! You can tell it’s New Orleans because of the curve of the Superdome to the right of the skyline.
New Orleans is a great city for “staycations” – we’ve stayed at downtown hotels and pretended to be tourists for a night, stopping at wine bars, dining at a romantic restaurant, then strolling through the French Quarter peering through iron gates into tropical secret courtyards. Sometimes it’s a less than 24 hour getaway and it’s perfect.
Do you ever “staycation” somewhere close to home?
