French Quarter RV Resort

May 13, 2011

We don’t comment much on the campgrounds we visit because we’re really not on the road for camping. For us, the RV is just a place to stay when we’re not off exploring great destinations. In that regard, we’re no more ‘RVers’ than other travelers are ‘Hotelers.’ In each case, where you sleep at night is incidental to the reason you’re there. It is a means to an end. But occasionally we come across a campground that is truly exceptional either because it is a beautiful destination in its own right or is impossibly close to where we want it to be.

We love big cities, but visiting them with an RV can be challenging. There really is no substitute for staying where all the action is; directly in the heart of the city. That’s hard to do with a 35 foot bus. Day-tripping to major sites is a distant second-best option. We miss strolling leisurely through neighborhoods at different times of day. We miss going out for dinner and drinks without having to worry about a long drive home. We miss getting to know a city as only a local can. Fortunately, we missed none of that in New Orleans.

As the name suggests, the French Quarter RV Resort, sits just two blocks form New Orleans’ main tourist area – the French Quarter. It is walking distance to almost anywhere we wanted to go. On each of our ten days in New Orleans, we did just that – walked or biked in and around the French Quarter and other areas of the city. The location is about as good as you could hope for when visiting a city of over 1 million people in an RV.

We’ve made no secret about our love affair with New Orleans. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that our trip wouldn’t have been nearly as successful if we didn’t also have this great base from which to explore.
