With romantic hotels, restaurants, and courtyards sprinkled throughout the city, New Orleans is the perfect place to honeymoon. Spend a day walking through the historic French Quarter then take a horse drawn carriage to one of New Orleans' award winning restaurants for dinner that night. Cruise down the Mississippi on a steamboat and spend the rest of the afternoon at the Audubon Zoo, one of the top-ranked zoos in the country. Stroll down St.Charles Avenue in the garden district, a beautiful street lined with magnificent southern mansions, and shop in the quaint boutiques on Magazine Street.
If you prefer a more quiet way to spend your honeymoon, New Orleans' beautiful hotels won't disappoint you. Relax by the pool in a gorgeous courtyard, or sip cocktails on your private balcony in the French Quarter. Many of New Orleans' best hotels offer honeymoon suites complete with oversize bathrooms and luxurious accommodations. Whether you're looking for lazy afternoons by the pool or active, event filled days, New Orleans is perfect for any type of honeymoon!
Because of its mild weather most of the year, New Orleans is a great honeymoon destination year round. The months of May through August can get pretty hot, but a hotel pool can take care of cooling you off on those warm afternoons. Whenever you plan your honeymoon, be sure to bring good walking shoes, as there is a lot to see and do in New Orleans.
