Just back from a trip to New Orleans and purchased this book at the Tulane University bookstore while I was there. Now I can't wait to go back and try some of the suggested walking tours. I've been to the city several times but there is always more to see and I love how the author presents 30 walks you can do by yourself and really get to experience all the wonderful neighborhoods of New Orleans. Easy to follow and written by a native. It's small enough that you can pack it in your bag and bring it along. Enjoy.
This book was written by a friend, so I was a little biased from the start... However, it is a GREAT guide to New Orleans. I lived in the Crescent City for almost three decades. moving after Katrina incurred her wrath on our home. My heart lives in two places, my hometown and my adopted NOLA. What a treasure for natives, visitors and tourists! Walking the city is a great way to justify all that wonderful food and drink you will enjoy while there!
I had in my possession for a few days and thought it was wonderful before a friend commandeered it. So I will likely order a replacement. For anyone who lives in New Orleans, as I do, it is a must. Great for individual walks and invaluable when you have guests. The walks are easily laid out with both attractions and places to eat along each route, and a map. Very attractive and easy to read and follow.
