What you'll do

Don't knock super-secret NOLA until you've tried it, along all the best (shh!) spots, like a skateboarder’s haven hidden underneath a busy overpass, or a mysterious oak tree that sings a sweet song. Channel your inner treasure hunter at a tomb straight out of an action movie, then let your imagination run wild at a whimsical toy store. Next, dart the crowds of Bourbon Street to bask in the beauty of a hidden park that honors jazz legends, then enjoy a page-turner bookstore filled with old-school charm. Step into the shoes of yesteryear's fashionistas at a vintage nook, then have a hat attack at a family-run spot that knows their Baileys from their berets. A dose of secret French colonial architecture is next, then treat your tastebuds to a snow cone gem.

Where you’ll go

Step right up to your gem of an adventure along the Big Easy, underneath the busy 610 overpass at a hub of skating stunts, then skip to the heart of luscious City Park where the giant Singing Oak stands. At mysterious St. Louis Cemetery is a tomb reserved by Nicolas Cage, then dart from the eerie to the magical Idea Factory shop. Stroll along boomin' Bourbon Street to a hidden garden filled with statues of jazz greats, then it's off to a French-style home bursting with books no longer in print. An explosion of pattern awaits at Royal Street's vintage Trashy Diva, oh my, and those hundreds of hats at Shushan's shop! Next, meander towards Chartres Street where a stunning neoclassical building is tucked, then there's no biz like snow-biz at dessert gem Hansen's.
