Cyndi was a great guide, knowledgable, fun and welcoming. I went on the courtyards tour and learned of about 10 other places and events to explore next time, including Cyndi's NOLA Heroines tour. Looking forward to that.

Went to visit the Mardi Gras world and it was a truly magical place. There were so many objects to see and be amazed by and the whole manufacturing process was fabulous to see and experience. Definitely worth a visit

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
