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
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

to look out at the river and see some boats and

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.
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
