I leave tomorrow evening for New Orleans for my half marathon on Sunday. I'm super-excited! I've never been, and I'm generally itching for a reason to get out of D.C. for the weekend. So this trip comes at a really good time (although it also requires me to run 13.1 miles, which I'm increasingly concerned that I'm ill prepared for!).
My question for you all is: What shouldn't I miss? Keep in mind that I won't have a car, but I'm staying in the French Quarter. I won't have a huge amount of time, so a big day trip probably isn't on the agenda this time around. Any suggestions for me?
