Top 5 to-dos for a date IntheNOLA

For those of you excited about Valentine's Day 2013 and still needing some ideas of maybe what to do, check out IntheNOLA's five to-dos for a date. And the good thing about these to-dos is that it doesn't have to be Valentine's Day for you and your significant other to enjoy them. Try 'em out all year round!

1. Take a gondola ride.
 
Head on over to New Orleans City Park for one of the most romantic settings in the city. Take a ride on Bella Mae, New Orleans’ only gondola, through the waterways, under bridges, and among the swans and ducks of City Park with NOLA Gondola.


 
2. Get some grub at Deanie’s Seafood.
 
One of our favorite restaurants in New Orleans, Deanie’s Seafood does not disappoint…ever. Munch on the boiled potatoes first, then split the half seafood platter. How romantic is it when you both reach for the last fried shrimp…
 



3. Catch a brass band.
 
There ain’t no staying still when a brass band’s playing. With Hot 8 at the Howlin’ Wolf on Sundays, Rebirth at the Maple Leaf and Treme Brass Band at d.b.a. on Tuesdays, The Original Pinettes at Vaso on Fridays, the Stooges at Blue Nile on Saturdays, and tons of others, what better way is there to get to know somebody (and their dancing skills) under the blaring horns of some of the best brass bands in New Orleans.
 



4. Try a scavenger hunt with food trucks.
 
Food trucks are the next big thing here in the city. Why not go traipsing around the city trying out the different ones? There’s Taceaux Loceaux for taco lovers, The Fry Bar for French fry lovers, Empanada Intifada for Latin food, Cupcakes & Co. for cupcakes, Baked! Of NOLA for cookies, and tons of others.
 



5. Take a ferry ride.

We love taking the ferry from the East to West bank. Leaving from Canal St. on the quarter-hour, the ferry is free to pedestrians and provides you with a different view point of our great city. Now, it doesn't last long, but when you get off, you're right in the heart of the French Quarter where there's always something to get in to.
