The Bywater arts and food scenes are the main draws to this revitalized neighborhood post-Katrina. Eat and drink your way through this bohemian area while taking in historic sites, street art, and colorful architecture. Discover neighborhood gems that'll make you feel like a local: start with corner store po-boys on the river, check out a hidden biergarten and choose your last stop because there's so much to enjoy! There's drinks with locals in the dive bar, sipping microbrews in the brewery garden or chowing down on some BBQ in a courtyard. Allong the way, check out cool street art and New Orleans history- visit the site that launched a historic Supreme Court civil rights case Plessy v Ferguson & see how this working class industrial corridor has become an artist mecca. This is a tour especially fit for beer and meat lovers (wine options also available), but all are welcome!
