There's nothing like meandering down Bourbon street with a frosty Hurricane in one hand, stopping here and there along the way. Drawn in by a blistering guitar riff here, a brilliant sax there. The musicianship was so staggeringly brilliant, I was blown away.
I'd spend at least an hour up there. Take photos, grab a drink -- chill out and rest. You have to pay to go up so might as well get your money's worth. Check out all the rooftop pool's while you're there.
