Romance is not just in the air in New Orleans, it’s everywhere! From gaslights on the streets of the French Quarter to the cozy bedrooms at Avenue Inn, New Orleans is the perfect place to sweeten up your sweetheart.
Valentine’s Day falls mid-week this year and you can celebrate anytime from the weekend before through the weekend after. Avenue Inn is offering special romantic packages, so give us a call! Below are some suggestions for special things to see and do when you visit.
Enjoy a stroll through City Park under arches of massive oaks, stop for beignets at Morning Call (they’re open dawn to midnight), and feel like a kid again with a ride on the historic carousel. Then wander through the French Quarter—or take a carriage ride—stopping to check out art galleries or Sucre, one of the sweetest shops in the Big Easy where you can sample their exquisite macarons.
Settle into one of NOLA’s great jazz clubs (Frenchman Street is a hotbed of them) and listen to music while sipping champagne or one of the city’s signature cocktails.
Then linger over dinner at a romantic restaurant. New Orleans has an abundance of places to choose from. A few favorites in the Garden District include the classy and ever-wonderful Commander’s Palace; Upperline, a comfortable spot nestled in an 1880’s townhouse; and Coquette, a charming setting with innovative Southern cuisine. It’s impossible to list all the many, many dining spots that offer romantic settings and delicious food. Ask Joe or Bebe here at the Inn and they’ll be happy to pair your taste with a perfect place.
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, so give us a call today to book your stay!
