Summer in New Orleans isn't generally the tourist time of year due to the climate and fear of storms. So what better time for me to take my family to the French Quarter. It's about 35 miles from my home in Pearl River, Louisiana so it really is a easy commute.
We took in some sights and ate at Oceana Grill. I highly recommend the restaurant located in the French Quarter on Conti Street about 20 feet off Bourbon Street. They offer a nice variety of local seafood dishes at decent prices. Having lived here my whole life I thought the seasoning was authentic tasting. After lunch or dinner feel free to stroll the French Quarter or eat some beignet's at Cafe du Monde
