Christmas Season in New Orleans, Great time for people owning a second home….

      I sell a lot of second homes  to clients from all over the country.  I am now selling a lot to people that do not live that far away like Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Jackson, Miss and such places.  They tend to know New Orleans is much more than Bourbon Street and there is a lot of things to do.  You can eat and drink at some of the most historic places and enjoy yourself to no end.

    Some of the best things are free however.  There is really no need for a car so just leave it at the condo and take the streetcar or cab to your favorite spots.  The weather has been great and its like Spring in reverse.   

     You can write a book on all the great Christmas decorations this time of year.  Below is just a small sample of what I have seen this past couple of weeks.  From simple decorations the the elaborate ones like at the Roosevelt Hotel few do as good a job as New Orleans.  They may just need practice for Mardi Gras and as a filler from Halloween.  People just like to do such things and then they become memories of years past.

    The weather is still mild.  These ducks found New Orleans recently and come all the way from South America to enjoy the season at Audubon Park.  The trees are just beginning to change color.  These crepe myrtles do show up well among the oak trees which will stay green all winter.  They have to leave their leaves soon as they need to bring new leaves out in March…

    The window shopping trips are something that has moved to the malls in most of America but you can still window shop here for the most unusual things.  This is just the tip of the iceberg but wanted to let you knwo there is so much to do, it is worth planning a trip.  Plan as their is a lot to see.  See a few scenes below and multiple it by 50 and it will fill up several days.  Bring your walking shoes…..
