Places to Visit in New Orleans/Metro New Orleans Area

Outside of Bourbon St., What else is there to do in New Orleans?

New Orleans is well known for it’s party scene on Bourbon St. and it’s unique culinary, but there are many other areas of sight seeing in the Crescent City that are worth checking out. There are too many to list but this is a start:

Lake Pontchartrain Causeway

THE WORLD’S LONGEST BRIDGE OVER A BODY OF WATER

www.TheCauseway.us

The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, sometimes only the Causeway,[2] is a fixed link composed of two parallel bridges ssing Lake Pontchartrain in southern LouisianaUnited States. The longer of the two bridges is 23.83 miles (38.35 km) long. The southern terminus of the Causeway is in Metairie, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans. The northern terminus is at Mandeville, Louisiana.
Since 1969, it was listed by Guinness World Records as the longest bridge over water in the world; in 2011, in response to the opening of the allegedly longer Jiaozhou Bay Bridge in China, Guinness World Records created two categories for bridges over water: continuous and aggregate lengths over water. Lake Pontchartrain Causeway then became the longest bridge over water (continuous)[3] while Jiaozhou Bay Bridge the longest bridge over water (aggregate).[4

As you can see, we have a diverse city with many sites to see, resulting in unexpected experiences when you travel to the city of New Orleans and the Metro New Orleans area. I am not a travel guide; more of a local resident who feels that so much of our Culture is overlooked, because so many people consider our area a party destination only. Don’t miss out! Do some research.

#The End Will Come

“Then they will hand you over to be tortured and will put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of my name. Then many will fall away, and they will betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because of the increase of lawlessness, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the world, as a testimony to all the nations; and then the end will come.”
Matthew 24:9-14

#Prayer is the Duty of Every Moment

“Prayer is the duty of every moment. We ought always to pray, said our Lord. And what He said, He did; therein lay His great power. Action accompanied His words and corresponded with them. We must pray always in order to be on our guard. Our life, both of body and soul, our natural and supernatural life, is like a fragile flower. We live surrounded by enemies. Ever since man rejected the Light that was meant to show him the way, everything has become for us an obstacle and a danger; we live in the shadow of death.”
— Dom Augustin Guillerand, p. 9

Attitude=100

Having and sharing a great attitude can do wonders for your personal well being and for your team’s well being.  It is contagious and uplifting.

One of my team members shared this with me when she came across it a few years ago.  I introduced it to our entire company team at our next meeting.  It recently circled back to me so, I wanted to pass along some inspiration and provoke some thought in “numbers people”. Do you thinks it is Coincidence or not?  Please leave a comment.
