Our friend, Satyajit Dixit, has started a Meetup group that’s perfect for meeting other newbies. Meet Sat (he’s the guy in the middle):
The “Exploring New Orleans” Meetup group goes to festivals, eats at restaurants, does neighborhood tours, goes to baseball games and does pretty much every other activity you want to do as a new person in New Orleans. The group is open to everyone.
Looking for other fun things to do around New Orleans?
We have a handful of go-to sources when we are trying to find something fun to do. They are:
– NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune: NOLA.com is the online home to the city’s metro paper. Along with general news, the site has an event calendar and does a ton of event previews. And, it has a “best bets” post every day too, with suggestions for how to fill your weekend.
– NewOrleansMomsBlog.com – This site for moms in New Orleans has events specifically geared toward kids and pregnant women.
Bottom line – there’s plenty to do in New Orleans so no need for you to sit at home twiddling your thumbs 🙂 If you want to get some more ideas, check out our event photos.
