Crime stats aside, if you are the person assaulted, murdered, etc., they don't matter. There's hardly a day that goes by that there's not a violent crime or two in our city, and sometimes innocent people are affected. Much of this isn't reported at the national level. Would this keep me from visiting here? Absolutely not. But I would use extra precaution and would be very, very careful being out at night anywhere in the N.O. area.

LIZAP, I plan on doing early dinners and or taking a cab from the hotel for those days that I want to eat out after 6:00pm.

I appreciate your insider info....thanks

Question: Did you stick to this routine? Really?

My Plan was to stick to this routine, but by the 4th day after my family left, I felt comfortable enough to walk to certain area's by myself….

I went to eat in the Garden District one night and dinner ran late so I took a cab back at 10:00pm….

It was a great trip

I'm female and currently in New Orleans to attend a conference at the Convention Center later this week. Agree that there's way too much to do to stay inside or close to the resort. Have stayed at Quarter House several times and feel that it is in general the most convenient in NOLA esp for the solo female traveler. Some tips:

- Turn right -- instead of left -- as you exit QH to avoid the corner bar. Daisy Dukes is a couple of doors down and Dickie Brennan's Palace Cafe on the corner at Canal has sidewalk dining where you can take in the street scene. If you want to stroll inside the French Quarter, turn right on Canal and enter Royal Street, where there are more pedestrians than Chartres.

- Food seems to taste better serve in local ambiance, so I've been feasting on 2 mid-day meals -- at 11am and 3pm -- when restaurants serve lunch and skipping dinner to adjust to a new timezone and the 7am conference start-time (hard for someone from the West Coast.

- Sign up for a food tour and get tips from an insider. Groupon has an additional 20% off on "Taste of Nawlins" for today only.

This is the 2nd time in 3 years that my conference is being in this lovely city, and I find it is a fine excuse to NOLA once again. This time I'm staying on an AC at Avenue Plaza, and while that is also a fine resort it doesn't compare to the colorful FQ environment. Take care.

I did this pretty much every day, even when family was with me…. Turning right out of the resort is the way to go….
