Frommer's Easyguide to New Orleans (Paperback)
Called the most interesting city in America, New Orleans is once again a massively popular destination, on a travel wish-list kept by almost every American. Our author, Diana K. Schwam, has written four books and numerous articles about New Orleans, where her long-ago desire to become a resident followed, she says, a familiar sequence: Vacation, Enrapture, Home Ownership, and Weight Gain. In this freshly-researched and up-to-date Easy Guide of 288 pages, she'll introduce you, among many other topics, to the world-famous cuisine of that city's unique restaurants, the vibrant music scene, the much-acclaimed new museums (dealing with World War II at one, with Southern Cuisine at another), and the historic architecture of the French Quarter, Garden District, and other famous locales.
