Four date ideas to get you out of the heat

New Orleans is generally warm during the summer months – even when, like recently, we have plenty of temporarily cooling rain. Summer seems to last from April to October, but something about this summer seems very hot and humid.

If you’re anything like us, it makes you want to flee the outdoors and head for the nearest building or structure with lots of cold air. So what happens when you want to set up a date with your sweetheart, but don’t want to sweat through your cute new outfit?

We have a few ideas to keep you away from the heat while still having fun.

Appointment 1:

Head to a museum! New Orleans is no stranger to history and our museums are some of the best in the country.
