Whether you’re a resident of New Orleans or you simply want to make the most of your visit, this visual guide by celebrated New Orleans photographer Kerri McCaffety will lead you down the right path! With stunning visual artistry, McCaffety’s photography, called “sensual and rich” by Francis Ford Coppola, vividly captures the character of sixty different Crescent City locations.
Revealing photos highlighting the French Quarter lead travelers to a mandatory stop at Café Du Monde. After grabbing coffee and beignets, take in the grand architecture of some of New Orleans’s most beautiful homes on a leisurely stroll through the historic Garden District or down St. Charles Avenue. Satisfy your hunger by meandering to a decadent dinner at one of the city’s famous Cajun or Creole restaurants. Weary foot travelers then can round out their trip with classic New Orleans cocktails and live music at one of the many charming bars featured in the book.
This visual tour of the city is a delightful synopsis of what is most beguiling in the one of the most eclectic cities in the world. It will serve as both a memento and traveling company as each individual explores their own interests in a city made to delight the senses.
