We are looking for feedback from you, our readers. Every March we feature the “Top Weekend Getaways” in New Orleans Magazine – places to go and things to see, all within a short drive of New Orleans. Last year, we featured a bike trip to Abita Brewing Co. and road trips to Henderson in St. Martin Parish, the “islands” in Iberia Parish (Avery Island and Jefferson Island), Ship Island and St. Francisville. Where are your favorite weekend destinations? These can be small towns or thriving metropolises, historical scenic tours or exciting destinations.
We are also looking for suggestions for our April issue; we want to find the under-the-radar hidden gems of New Orleans’ most infamous faubourg: the French Quarter, its underrated restaurants and bars, the tucked-away shops and the destinations that make the Vieux Carré one of our favorite places in New Orleans – tourists and all.
Email suggestions for “Top Weekend Getaways” and “Rediscovering the French Quarter” to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail them to: 110 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Suite 123, Metairie, LA 70005.
Clarification: In our “Tops of the Town” readers’ choice survey, which appeared in the January 2011 issue, the winner of the “Favorite Creole Food” category was listed as Mr. Ed’s Creole Grille. The restaurant has recently changed ownership within the family and is now known simply as The Creole Grille.
