Hello everyone,

I've been looking and looking around and haven't been able to decide. Tomorrow morning I'll be flying a Cessna 206 Turbo from Independence, Kansas to Daytona Beach, Florida.

Since it's going to be nearly an 8-hour trip, I decided to stop and spend the night in a mid-point along the route. Figures that Baton Rouge and New Orleans are one of my options (the other options are Nashville, TN, Mobile, AL, and Pensacola, FL).

Probably like many of you, sculptures and boring museum stuff makes me fall asleep and feel like I'm wasting my time (I'm more like going to bars, joints, etc). If any of you know any good reasons of why I should go to the above-mentioned cities, I'd really appreciate it! Also, if any of you might come up with other cities worth to stop by, it would be awesome!

Thanks in advance!!!

Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous!

Ummm... is this even a question? New Orleans, hands down. You won't regret it.

Is it really so bad?! I've heard it hasn't been built after Katrina, which leads me to think that Baton Rouge is in the same shape!

That's far from true. I went to school in Nola for 4 years, and that included both before and after the hurricane. By the end of my time there, the city still has some problems but everything a visitor would enjoy about it is back and going strong. The quarter was mostly untouched, uptown is still beautiful and everything is open... it's mainly the poorer residential areas that are still screwed like the upper and lower 9th ward. You can't go wrong, the nightlife and the food and the general beauty of such a historic place make it one of the best places to visit in the country, much less better than Baton Rouge.

New Orleans:

NEW is about 10 minutes from the French Quarter/Downtown, but a decent hotel is not as close to the airport

MSY is about 20 minutes from the French Quarter/Downtown, but hotels are nearby

Of course, for a fun time, there's Bourbon St.

Baton Rouge:

BTR is about 10 minutes from downtown Baton Rouge.

Many cool bars on 3rd Street, different atmosphere than Bourbon St., not as "wild," for lack of a better term.

I'm from New Orleans, but go to school at LSU in Baton Rouge...two totally different nightlife's. If you've never been to NO, Bourbon St. is definitely worth checking out. However, there are a bunch of cool places in the Warehouse District and Uptown on Magazine Street.

New Orleans, without a shadow of a doubt.

Land at NEW, where you will find exceptional service.

Stay IN THE QUARTER. I recommend the Omni Royal Orleans, or the Prince Conti- but there are dozens of excellent options.

Enjoy, and tell all when you return.
