Crescent Park in New Orleans is amazing
There's a lot to do in New Orleans, which is why tourists never make it to Crescent Park in the Bywater. I wrote about it for American Airlines' in-flight magazine, and I recently rediscovered it this past weekend with a bike. The park sprawls a few miles right along the river, has INSANE views of New Orleans' skyline and it's not overcrowded (if anything, its mostly hip locals who come here). If anything, I recommend coming just for the views. They're very impressive!
