I’m not sure stats exist about how much fans of certain sports travel to enjoy a weekend at the game. Baseball travel is all too obvious. But why not NBA travel? Proving how fun traveling to an NBA game can be is why we set out on the NBA Road Trip. The latest installment took us to New Orleans where we spent an evening enjoying the New Orleans Pelicans. They might not be in playoff contention this season, but the New Orleans Pelicans do have some exciting young players and a fun arena.
Spending 48 hours in New Orleans can be one of the most challenging or fun travel experiences, depending on your perspective. On one hand, the Crescent City has too much to try to cram into a 48-hour period. But if a visitor adopts the city’s great carefree attitude, well, 48 hours in New Orleans is a special experience, even when traveling as a family.
How is it possible to visit New Orleans with kids and have a great time? Well, if stumbling down Bourbon Street en route to a show at Preservation Hall, followed by a nightcap at Pat O’Brien’s and then a 3 a.m. snack of beignets at Cafe du Monde is your idea of a fun night, well, New Orleans with kids might not be the best idea. But if strolling the beautiful streets of the French Quarter, taking a streetcar ride into the Garden District, and sampling this city’s world-class cuisine is your idea of fun, New Orleans with kids holds lots of possibilities.
