This is a work of art for anyone looking to move to the area.  I have learned so much about New Orleans from following your terrific blog.  Moving to a whole new area can be so intimidating, but you've made your area sound like it has a lot of friendly things to do just waiting for a new resident to jump in and try.  You've got something for everyone!  Thank you for putting it all together.

LISA - You have done such a great job of showing us all the other side of New Orleans (real life, not just parties) over the course of time.  This relocation package is a culmination of all of the great information that you always provide.  Well done!

Lisa, I'd like to thank-you for a couple of reasons.  First, this was a call-to-action post for me. As an AR newbie I have been doing a lot of searching to find interesting blogs and ways that I could contribute.  Telling people about your community is definitely a contribution!  Second, I am planning a trip to NO next month and used some of your links to learn more about the City.

Lisa.  What a wonderful relo package for any one considering a move to New Orleans!  We considered a move there in 2001 and do you know what we had to do?  DRIVE all the way from Iowa and check it out in person!  Dining at Emeril's almost did it, but in the end, we moved to Virginia.

Lisa,  I think that I will actually be in NO for Jazz fest.  I didn't know anything about it until after we had scheduled our flights, but we are looking forward to be there then.
