Family-owned for five generations, the Hotel Monteleone stands majestically on Royal Street in New Orleans. It has even been said. “The French Quarter begins in the lobby of the Hotel Monteleone.” One step into the lobby and I understand how true that is.
If you enjoy the many freedoms available in America, a must-do is the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. Here you learn of the sacrifices everyday men and women made for you to enjoy the many liberties often taken for granted. WW II may have ended decades ago, but its lessons and victories must not be forgotten.
When your taxi lets you out in front of a row of unassuming buildings, don’t let the exterior appearance fool you. Once Audubon Cottages‘s private entrance door opens, you are immediately swept into an entirely different world. The French Quarter’s bustling streets quickly fade from your thoughts. A sense of calm takes over you as you walk along a tree-lined pathway deeper into this beautiful haven.
