Off-Season in New Orleans ~ A Family Budget Vacation

The first week in March, the husband and I went to New Orleans by Amtrak without the kids.  We had 5 days to ourselves exploring all we wanted to see and do in the Big Easy.  There was sooo much more than just good drinks, we loved every bit of our adventure.  But...WE SPENT A TON!

The kids (6 and 3) haven't let us forget the fact that they want to go to New Orleans, too!  Soooo...things worked out well in their favor.  We are going to NOLA in the summer!  YIKES!  Yes...we are crazy.  Yes...we know it will be hot.  Yes... we know it's really balmy allll summer.  

However.... we are aiming for a Budget-Friendly Family Vacation.  By traveling to a destination with a summer off-season, we are more likely to accomplish that.  So far, I have planned the first 4 days of our itinerary  and we should come in waaaaay under budget :D

I recently did a review on, and through them, I found a Timeshare Rental for only $60/night! Only $240 for 4 nights in New Orleans!  To top it off, we will be staying right at the end of the French Quarter, near the Market :D  So I can wake up, and walk the few blocks to Cafe du Monde for my Beignets and Cafe Au Lait!!!  My girls are gonna be soooo excited to finally get real beignets!

Please follow Housewife Survival Guide to stay current as we plan our vacation.  As we get nearer to our departure, I will post a full itinerary.  When we arrive, you will be seeing reviews of places and things we are enjoying, pictures included.

If you have any tips, advice, or suggestions... feel free to comment on this post to let us know.  I don't want to miss out on a great adventure.
