      “In a national survey, Americans voted online for the most “animated, brilliant, lively and vivacious” city in the United States. The winner–New Orleans! Yellowtail Wines sponsored the survey, and the city will receive its award, given by travel authority Pauline Frommer and Yellowtail, in front of St. Louis Cathedral, behind Jackson Square, on July 1. Welcome, and sparkle on!”   Sharon Keating- New Orleans Travel Blog

       This is a local travel blog I read weekly.  Living here we do not always know what goes on as we are doing our thing which is New Orleans real estate.  This is a blog I check into several times a week to see what is happening.  Its the positive spots we all need to know.  I sell more and more New Orleans second homes that are condos.  If you run out of things to do you should check out the blog before you come to town.  

New Orleans Second Homes, French Quarter Condos

    This French Quarter and the Warehouse District have been hot spots for second homes with people even looking Uptown.  The French Quarter is much, much cleaner than it used to be and people are taking more pride in all the areas since Katrina.  There are becoming more family attractions than ever before and that is accounting for a lot of the new business.  Some of it are people living in the New Orleans Metro area that want to stay close to home and have a place to visit that has a little excitement.  

    These areas are a great place to entertain and visit on a regular basis.  Its easy to get people to accept an invitation.  It tends to go against the grain as to what is happening in other real estate markets, but then a lot of things in New Orleans tend to be against the grain.  Property taxes were lowered 30% in 2008.  Charter schools are the norm.  The Hornets are winning, the Saints should be winning and LSU are the college football champions for the 2nd time in 5 years.
