Frommer's EasyGuide to New Orleans 2016 (Frommer's Easy Guides) - Diana K. Schwam

This book, written by a NOLA local who started out as a tourist, is both informative and entertaining. With personal anecdotes interspersed with sound travel advice, the book was fun to read. I am visiting NOLA in May (part business, part pleasure), and this book helped me make excellent decisions for my limited free time.

Recommendations range from restaurants, to self-guided walking tours, to which guided tour companies deliver the most bang for the buck.

Highly recommended for those planning a trip to the Crescent City.
