  • One of my favorite places to visit whenever I want a work break. I go here to remind me of what's possible, the lifestyle I'm am pursuing, I love and enjoy hearing the story during the tour. I imagine myself living just as influential, this place influence me to keep moving forward in a way that provides for me, my family and strangers in the future. It's not just about what you accomplish today, but how will your accomplishments influence the future.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
