Cafe du Monde is as touristy as it gets and a stones throw from the Mississippi River. Gator on a stick is offered at the French Market. The Old Legends Park was the best place to grab a beignet and a cup of coffee while listening to a jazz quartet.
New Orlean’s French Quarter — a walk-able feast for eyes, ears and taste buds — is the real deal. Gritty, sweaty, and as down-to-earth as a city might get.
Scenery around Seattle and it’s surrounding area is stunning. When you come from a flat-lander area, it can actually be awesome. Take those remarkably tall evergreens, add a thundering waterfall to the scene, throw in an impressive lodge and shake till you just don’t know where to look first.
It is a scene that screams, this is what Washington is all about. Big, strong, and broad shouldered, this state is not for wimps. But, this is a blog about food, so why am I writing about panoramic views?
