Hello-I'm going to be coming to New Orleans for the first time with my 12yo son in April. I've never been and very excited to visit. I really enjoy things off the beaten path, good unpretentious food and places that have a very rich local culture so I figured N.O. would be the perfect place.

My questions are:

1. Where should we stay?
2. Do we need a car?
3. How many days should we spend?

I think we'll do some of the typical tourist stuff like the boat ride through the bayou, cemetery tours, etc.. not sure what else is good to do with kids there?

My son is pretty tolerant of my interests so it's not like he needs to be entertained the whole time.

Thanks for your help

There's a lot to see and do in New Orleans. Just spending a day in the French Quarter, walking around, looking in all the shops on the side streets (my favorite thing to do!)... LOTS and LOTS to do down there, the Riverwalk, going to the river and watching the boats go by.. the boat I work on gets down there now and then and we spend the day doing tow work right across from the riverwalk.

New Orleans is a very interesting city, lots of culture, good food and lots to see!
