After crossing through Mississippi, we arrived into the state of Louisiana. Not too long after that we arrived into New Orleans. It was my first time there so I was excited to see the town. We stopped for several nights at the dog-friendly Sheraton hotel, shown in this picture. Being right downtown, there wasn't much greenery within a block or two of the hotel. However, this hotel actual had a fenced- in pet walk.
This photo shows the Sheraton's pet walk. It was a small but extremely convenient spot to take your dog to relieve him or herself. All we had to do was walk across the hotel lobby and across the hotel's valet parking driveway to arrive at the pet walk. This came in very handy as there was a big thunderstorm on the night we arrived.
This was the view from our hotel room. We were able to look out at the river and see some boats and barges moving along. 
The next morning there was still some light rain. It made for a nice cool walk but there were not too many outdoor dining seats at the local restaurants. We did do some sightseeing in the the French Quarter, which was just a few blocks away from our hotel. 
Sometimes we walked several blocks from the hotel to the waterfront, which was especially nice when your dog prefers some grass and bushes over concrete. This photo shows a paved path right alongside the waterfront. It is a popular path for walkers, joggers and bicyclists.
There was some great architecture to view in New Orleans. This photo shows a small fountain with statues of some Jazz musicians.
There were several outdoor markets in downtown New Orleans which made it easier to shop with a dog in tow.
This carriage ride, pulled by a mule, allowed dogs. While I did not get the exact name of the carriage company, it was pretty to easy to find in downtown, especially in the French Quarter, near the city park. Even though the majority of our two days in New Orleans was soggy, we were still able to walk around and enjoy the sights and sounds.
On our way out of town, we stopped for lunch at the Whole Foods Market near the Garden District (pictured here). We took turns going inside and ordering food from the deli while one of us stayed outside to watch Toby. After all of us had our food, we sat down to eat at one of the outdoor tables.

Even though we enjoyed our stay in downtown New Orleans, next time we will stay in the historic Garden District. It is a short drive from downtown New Orleans. It is almost like its own downtown with hotels, restaurants, shops and houses, but in general it offers larger sidewalks with more grass, which Toby seemed to like.
