What to Wear in New Orleans in Spring

Spring in New Orleans has the best weather – the days and nights are cooler than the summer months, and it is the best time to get out and explore. Make sure you pack a light jacket or light sweater for the evening and comfortable shoes during the day to explore the French Quarter.

If you are hitting the bar scene or want a night out on Bourbon Street, I suggest wearing something cute, stylish, yet comfortable. I typically avoid a skinny heel while I am out but pick a pair of heels with a chunkier heel lto help walk on uneven pavement.
