Spill your secrets about New Orleans

Travel is one of those things that you'd get really good at if you did them all the time. Unfortunately, few people get to do it all the time—including the staff of Budget Travel. So we're pooling our knowledge: We ask you a question, you share your advice, and then we spotlight the most helpful tips in a future magazine issue. This week's question is:

"My friends and I will be spending New Year's (Dec. 28-Jan. 2) in New Orleans. For most of us, it'll be our first time in Louisiana. We would like to explore the area while being respectful. Can you recommend any swamp or plantation tours? What are some great local restaurants? Do we need to rent a car the entire time? What are the best day trip options? Any other can't-miss activities?" —Amy Chen, Assistant Editor
