This is one of those travel recap posts where I don’t even know where to begin because it was such a great trip. So, I will just dive right in. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I visited The Big Easy last week for Essence Festival. Essence Festival is a huge event that brings about 500,000 people to the city of New Orleans every 4th of July weekend. It was highlighted in the movie Girls Trip and it celebrates black culture, music and of course food! I went to my first Essence Festival two years ago and I have been so excited to go back. So here are all of the details of my latest trip. Enjoy!
Where I Stayed
My first time in New Orleans, I stayed on Bourbon Street. While it was fun and exciting, it was also…a lot! So this time around, I decided to rent a house. My sister and some friends came so it seemed like the perfect option for us all to be under one roof. It was the best decision. The house was absolutely gorgeous. It was the perfect blend of New Orleans old charm mixed with modern details. This historic home was built in the 1890s and a lot of those older details that you can’t find anywhere else have been preserved. However, it had features like a top of the line, modern kitchen, surround sound throughout the entire home including the backyard and rain head steam shower. Plus, it had a private pool that was so needed in the sweltering humidity.
