Hi - weve done LA and Las Vegas a number of times - going to NOLA for the first time next year.

Was there a reason you picked those three? LA and Vegas are an obvious fit together due to geography but not so much NOLA.

Flights very cheap between LA and Vegas (easy but boring drive too).

How long will you have?

Do you want to drive?

What in LA are you targeting - if Disneyland is on the cards, dont stay in LA - its in the city of Anaheim and traffic can be awful between the two.

Avoid weekends in Vegas as hotels are very expensive. Also massive conferences inflate mid week prices.

Where in the U.K. do you want to fly from? And roughly when?

Id certainly expect a DIY option to be most favourable for prices and flexibility.

Just a few random things to hopefully help the plan :-)

We havent tried that combo but did try. Weeks road trip through Texas to Nola and back a different route to take in the Houston Rodeo. Singapore fly direct from Manchester and flights are very reasonable. Loved Nola and southern Texas and the gulf well worth seeing.

Not done Vegas but have done LA and New Orleans ( 3rd trip there this year). NOLA just isnt really near anywhere so a tricky one . This year we flew in from Orlando and then we did a loop up to Shreveport and back again via Baton Rouge. Previously we flew there from Nashville. Have written about last two visits in my trippies and will be writing up our third visit very shortly !

We've always fancied going to NOLA so was thinking about flying there first for three days sometime in October and then off to LA (five days) and then Vegas (five days)

We've done Vegas several times so know the score there, So basically looking for info where to stay in NOLA, LA would be for knotts berry farm and disney plus I'd really want to go to a gig/nights out at rainbow/whiskey/HOB and what airlines would be the best option for the multi flights

Thanks for the reply

Where would you recommend to stay in NOLA?
