Here's what happens when Jenna heads to NOLA for 24 hours.

Jenna Bush Hager in New Orleans

Hey yall! I'm so excited to share some of the interesting people, places, and things I discover as I journey through the South and beyond. Be sure to check back each week for updates on my latest adventures! My favorite things–the New Orleans edition:

1. Have Dinner at Pêche.
This seafood grill in the Warehouse District is a new personal fave. With a more modern approach to New Orleans seafood, this restaurant prepares everything using their open fire kitchen.

2. Plan a visit to Leontine Linens.
It's always a treat to visit this linen mecca and to be a part of the design process. You'll find everything from custom bedding to jewelry pouches. There's no place that handcrafts more beautiful monograms.

3. Explore Longue Vue House & Gardens.
It's a beautiful New Orleans estate situated amongst some of the prettiest gardens in the South. Just don't expect to go on a tour during Mardi Gras!

We love the Crescent City for its vibrant culture, food scene, music, and people. New Orleans hosts some of the region's best parades, food experiences, and music festivals. Where's your favorite stop in the Big Easy?
