HASH(0x9a9ffe58) out of 5 stars More than just a travel guide Feb. 15 2011
By Opinionator - Published on
Format: Paperback
There are travel guides written by "professioanl tourists", we know who they are. They are all over TV these days, blah, blah, blah. And then there are travel guides written by those whose love of the place they are writing about shows through. For the new author of the Frommers 2011 Guide to New Orleans this love is right out front. Diana Schwam's refreshing new conversational style and clear enthuisiam for all things Nawlins' makes this years guide perhaps the best yet. Anyone can lists "bests", "must sees", hotel prices and tourists traps. The author adds her own take on a life style and culture that make this city one of a kind. She tells how to join in, relax be part of a city with more history and a culture all it's own, like few others. The people of New Orleans don't just live there, they live to be part of the city, it's music, it's food, it smells, its grit and beauty, it's history, feel and uniqueness. This years guide captures that joie de vie. For it's residents, after Hurricane Katrina this love has grown brighter and more vibrant. The author shares her love of the city and makes past sections on history and culture seem new and renewed. The Frommers Guide to New Orleans for 2011 has been renewed too. Just like this national treasure of a city that we almost lost. It's almost as much fun to read as being in the city itself. Mix yourself up a Szaerac cocktail, sit back and read The authors tales of nightlife, the distinction between, creole, cajun, jazz, zydeco the highlights and low'll start to feel like you are there already.

HASH(0x9a455f6c) out of 5 stars Time: The Travel Book's Worst Enemy June 14 2011
By Linda Likes to Learn - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although this guide is supposed to be 'good' for the year 2011, I found a few discrepancies - businesses that were no longer open, restaurants whose ratings should very definitely be downgraded, etc. New Orleans remains in a great state of fluctuation, even many years after Katrina and her sister's damage. This '2011' book was quite probably written, or revised, more than a year before it was published. That's a very long time to expect 'status quo' in NOLA (New Orleans, LA). Use this guide as a source for many inspiring and interesting suggestions - but be sure to phone and double-check for closings or change in venues. If you're a real foodie, browse NOLA's excellent bookstores and local publications, including the Food Editor at the Times-Picayune, for updates on great dining - before you make reservations at a 100-year-old restaurant legend whose quality has slipped - and you regrettably have spent $250 for dinner that would have enjoyed much more - elsewhere. New Orleans is a fascinating place to visit, with ancient and new side by side. What's new today may be gone next month - but as long as the Vieux Carre (French Quarter) remains, as well as the rest of this multi-faceted city, there will be plenty to explore and enjoy.

HASH(0x9ad0c9a8) out of 5 stars You need this book! Nov. 27 2011

Format: Paperback
If you're planning a trip, get this book. If you enjoy reliving your last trip, get this book. If you just love living vicariously through others, get this book. All the helpful insider info will make your visit even better. Love Love Love the Best First-Timers Experiences and the Walking Tours. I go semi-regularly for Jazz Fest, but the Calendar of Events has plenty to tempt me. Get this book for someone you want to experience NOLA with; it'll happen sooner than you think.
