Hello All,

Im planning a little getaway with my wife for next Month (Prob Mid - End Oct, Early Nov)

We are both huge food fans and Ive always wanted to go to NO. How is the weather in Oct / Nov? Where should we stay? I want somewhere nice, 4-5 stars close to everything. Where to eat? Is it safe?

We have been to Florida, San Fran, New York, Chicago, Boston, all over New England, .... I want to try somewhere different.

Thanks!

Unhappy Re vac in New O....

I would go west to Corpus Cristi or maybe even New London...

Anywhere that Gustav may not have an effect on.

This could be a very bad storm.

Wait and see.

HW....Happy trails.

Gustave is a very bad storm and while it will certainly be gone by October, there is no way to know how much damage will remain. Once the storm passes and damage is assessed, you'll probably get recommendations from the locals. Right now I think everyone in NOLA is focused on survival.

I agree. Reassess the situation maybe later in September when things will hopefully be back to normal. So far things have been good, but you never know. It ain't over yet.

Exactly. Gustav is a major hurricane that could leave a lot of damage to New Orleans. It could take many many months for new Orleans to recover. Katrina left New Orleans in standing water. They have made a lot of progress on recovering, but are still not done and Gustav will only make it worse.

Hurricane season lasts until the end of November. You may want to look into travel insurance traveling to the gulf coast anytime during hurricane season.
