A h, New Orleans: a city where people roll out of bed and immediately wonder, "Where should I eat today?" followed soon after by, "Where should I drink today?" And while you can (and must, really) ping-pong between an extraordinary assortment of dives, oyster bars, cocktail hotspots, and white-tablecloth eateries during your time in the Crescent City, it's only fair to take a break every once and a while… if only to give yourself time to plan the next meal.
In addition to Sunday second lines and Mardi Gras parades (which, obviously, are not-to-be-missed occasions), below are ways to soak up all the natural and cultural wonders of New Orleans between meals, from getting funky -- like, seriously funky -- on a Saturday night, to diving deep into the world of the weird at a museum like none you've ever seen. And never fear! If you ever want to bail on the "not drinking" part, a daiquiri in a go cup is (whew) only a few blocks away.
