New Orleans Makes You Good Crazy

When monkeys get the jitters, they've got New Orleans on their backs.  There is only so much Heaven and so much Hell that this wonderful world or ours can contain.  New Orleans has got you covered.  Sleep the sleep of the contented in New Orleans and dream sweet New Orleans dreams.  In an authentic New Orleans state of mind, you are the pearl in the middle of an oyster.  New Orleans makes you good crazy.

My favorite painting in the New Orleans Museum of Art at the end of our street.

New Orleans memories are the best memories.  The luckiest people alive are the people who call this wonderful city home.  We get to make good New Orleans memories every day and in every way.  When we go home, we're still in New Orleans.  We are New Orleans.  We soak up the stuff from which good memories are made and we live it out.  New Orleans is us.  Sanctus, Sanctus, NOLA.  Who Dat!  

Everyone who lives in New Orleans lives here by choice.  New Orleans makes you good crazy.  Everyone who lives here had to make a conscious decision to move back after Hurricane Katrina, or, to move here for their first time to be a part of this giant sociology experiment of rebuilding what has justifiably been forever called, "America's Most Interesting City."  Defend New Orleans.  Vive la Nouvelle Orléans!


Everyone who lives in New Orleans is in love with New Orleans.  If we didn't love it we wouldn't be a part of it.  If we didn't love New Orleans, we would live where you do.  No offense intended.  I'm sure you live in a nice neighborhood with good schools.  There is nothing wrong with that.  Don't be ashamed.  Good on you.  I mean that sincerely.

Welcome to New Orleans.  New Orleans is very different from anywhere else you've ever been.  It can be confusing but, in a New Orleans state of mind, good memories are made when the city unfolds serendipitously at its own pace, in its own way.  Be prepared for pleasant surprises every time you turn a corner in New Orleans.  Don't overplan.  If you are bored in New Orleans, you must have a hole in your soul.

Every day takes care of itself in New Orleans. Come Hell or high water, New Orleans will endure forever.  New Orleans has more pluck than a turkey or a duck.  If you want to sample a slice of Heaven on Earth, you'll spend a week in New Orleans.  Nobody ever says their visit is too long.  The longer you are here, the more you'll realize how much more there is to discover and explore.  New Orleans is an onion, one layer under another, under another, under another....

New Orleans makes you good crazy in all the best ways.

A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR:  Once upon a time, two lovers who were young at heart visited New Orleans. They stayed at La Belle Esplanade and every year forever after they come back to this small hotel where one proposed and the other accepted.  They live happily ever after, spending every anniversary in New Orleans.  Every anniversary at La Belle Esplanade.  There are worse ways to spend your time.  I know.  I live here.  

La Belle Esplanade is the small New Orleans hotel that respects your intelligence.  If you want to find out what it means to fall in love with the real New Orleans, La Belle Esplanade has been the #1-ranked place to stay in New Orleans since April 2014, and #2 in the U.S., and #16 in the world.  Visit New Orleans like you mean it.
