1 Watch jazz legend Ellis Marsalis tickle the keys

Make your dinner reservations for Friday night at Snug Harbor. This cozy restaurant and bar in the tucked-away neighborhood of the Marigny is the place to be Friday nights when when you might catch legendary jazz pianist Ellis Marsalis live.

2 Dance with the band at Rock-N-Bowl

Almost every night a different live band plays at Rock-N-Bowl. Just don't drop a bowling ball on your toes while you swing your partner to Zydeco, R&B, or Rock.

3 Catch a Zulu coconut at Mardi Gras

If you're going to Mardi Gras, keep your eyes peeled for the Zulu Parade. Rare and sought after, a Zulu coconut is the ultimate prize for all Mardi Gras on-lookers. Of course catching some beads is pretty fun too.

 

4 Go antiquing on Magazine Street

Magazine Street has some great antique stores for all sorts of plantation and early New Orleans styles, as well as other European and American classics. It's a great place to spend a few leisurely hours.

5 Cool off with a New Orleans snowball

Snowballs are New Orleans' unique take on a cool summer treat. Hansen's Sno-Bliz is one of, if not the, most popular spots to order one. The list of flavors is long - we like chocolate and condensed milk.

6 Tour Longue Vue House and Gardens

A Colonial Revival Estate built by Sears and Roebuck heir Edith Stern, Longue Vue is a must see, and its gardens are a great place to pretend you're a Southern belle.
