Please tell us if this is a bad idea.

We would want to stay for a week or less. We want to stay at a place that is authentic. Maybe an air B and B or a smaller boutique hotel.

What will the weather be like then? Any recommendations? What to do on Easter? Does the whole city shut down? Or is it very alive? Is it flooded with tourists, like Mardi Gras? Or is it crazy?

Is Easter a good time to visit? What goes on then?

The weather during Easter is arguably the best of the year: sunny and warm

Starting April 16 is the FQ Fest which is one of the biggest festivals in the French Quarter but you'll be there a week before. It will be busy but not overcrowded.

A good hotel would be Peter and Paul. It's a church converted to a hotel so definitely very boutique-ish.

Thank you SO much! I am excited. I will check out Peter and Paul!

How warm or cold can I expect it to be? Should I take dressy clothes for Easter and dining out? Will we need warm coats?

Easter is quite a movable holiday, and New Orleans is always sunny and warm.

Edit: at least muggy and warm.

Averages are in the 70's but it could be in the 60's or 80's depending on the weather.

If you are dining at a fine restaurant you should dress up.
