New Orleans is a city that stands out in the South. It offers diversity and mystery and is like a little taste of Europe stateside. Take a trip with your true love and explore the romance of sunset on the bayou, hidden architectural treasures on cobblestone streets, avenues lined with ancient oaks, and street cars that drive you to candlelit bistros.
In a Restaurant
New Orleansis a melting pot of cultures and traditions. It offers some of the mostinteresting and diverse food of the gulf south. Decide on a cuisine that suitsyour fancy – French? Cajun? Italian? Indian? – and make a reservation at one of New Orleans’many small, intimate neighborhood restaurants. Or for a more spontaneousproposal experience, wander
Magazine Street and choose one of the best places topropose on the spot as you stroll by the wide selection of restaurants andbars.
Under the Trees
Audubon Park is full of gorgeous old live oak trees that offer both shade and romance. Relive your childhood by climbing the low limbs, and pull out a diamond cluster engagement ring for a surprise proposal among the leaves. Or if you’d prefer to keep both feet on the ground, pack a decadent picnic lunch of prepared food and fresh fruit from Whole Foods Market. Wander the park and spread a picnic blanket under the trees. And if you want to make a day of it, nearby attractions include thebotantical garden, zoo, and art museum.
On the Water
For a proposal that is unique to New Orleans, choose to propose on or along one of its many bodies of water. One of the best places to propose from this perspective is on a swamp tour. There are many opportunities for such adventures in south Louisiana. Consider a Honey Island Swamp Tour, which is a little off the beaten path from most New Orleansarea attractions, but which is worth the drive. Ride through a mysterious worldof ancient reptiles and birds, still waters, and Spanish moss until the momentis right to pop the question.
