Most everyone is thinking about household budgets this year, but that doesn’t mean that travel has to stop. It does mean that travelers are looking for more deals than ever before: lower airfare, discounted lodging, and other specials. That’s why August is such a good time to travel to New Orleans.
Several of our member New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts are currently offering specials. At Auld Sweet Olive Bed and Breakfast, guests who stay four nights pay for only three nights. At Oakview Bed and Breakfast, guests who stay for two nights get a third night free. B&W Courtyards is discounting two of their rooms for guests who stay at least 2 nights.
There’s another good reason to travel to New Orleans this month: Coolinary New Orleans. Throughout the month of August, many of the city’s most famous and well-regarded restaurants offer deep discounts for lunch and dinner (perfect for guests of New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts, who enjoy the first meal of the day at their lodging). Participating restaurants offer two-course luncheons for $20 or less, and three-course dinners for 35$ or less.
This is a great time for experienced and novice foodies to visit New Orleans. It’s the ideal time to break old habits and try a new type of cuisine or a new dish. Bring your appetite and plan to eat your way through New Orleans this August!
A list of participating restaurants and their special menus is available at Coolinary New Orleans.
