Travelers Guide : Where to go, stay, and see in New Orleans, LA + Mobile, AL

Hey everyone!

So today I am doing something a little different from what I normally post on here. I really wanted to start sharing my travels with you guys and also share some of my favorite places that you just have to see when your traveling. Now I think I want to make this into a little series, where I will share all of my travels with you guys right after I go somewhere new. If you like this idea be sure to comment below and let me know if you want me to continue this series! Today we are spotlighting two cities. New Orleans, Louisiana and Mobile, Alabama. Two cities that I just adventured in last week.



Mobile, Alabama

 
 

 





 
 
 
 
 
 


 

First thing to do in Mobile -

Discover the city! Mobile is one of those beautiful old school southern cities that has amazing architecture, with sky scrapers intertwined with old beautiful buildings.

Key Places to see -

St. Joseph street ( the main stretch of down town )

Bienville Park Off of Dauphin street ( Beautiful park with very picturesque fountain )




 
 




Where to stay :

So I stayed right downtown at the http://www.hotelsone.com/mobile-hotels-us/hampton-inn-suites-mobile-downtown-historic-district.html?as=b&aid=1283785271&dsti=272998&dstt=8&label=bing-ggehoeu-bh272998&akw=30204855026&akwu=hampton%20inn%20downtown%20mobile&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=hampton%20inn%20downtown%20mobile&utm_content=us-al_bh272998&utm_campaign=us-USA-Alabama-Hotels-oe-en

The hotel was dead center in the city and our room had a massive balcony with the greatest view. The hotel was practically brand new and I would highly recommend to anyone going to Mobile.






Where to eat -

The best place to eat when in town is at the Wintzell's Oyster House. This restaurant is a complete institution that has been in business since 1938 and has great food & atmosphere.
