I am trying to plan a long weekend vacation and I’m torn between New Orleans or Tampa. We are interested in attractions in both places and both would be the same price. We’ve never been to either location – any help would be great!
New Orleans, hands down!
I’ve been to both places and found Tampa to be a little boring with not a whole lot to do (although the aquarium is nice). It just pales in comparison to New Orleans (which also has an aquarium).
In New Orleans there are lots of interesting neighborhood tours and cemetary tours, not to mention the French Quarter is amazing! The architecture is beautiful, there’s plenty of attractions and shopping, as well as tons of bars and restaurants. If you have enough time you could even do a plantation or swamp tour outside of the city.
