What better place to celebrate American Independence than in New Orleans? We, as a city, like to party and the Fourth of July is no exception. New Orleans loves to embrace traditional celebrations and, as always, put our very own NOLA spin on things! Check out these five traditional Fourth of July festivities with a little New Orleans twist.
1. Hot Dogs and Hamburgers. Just because you’re in New Orleans, doesn’t mean you can’t get your traditional July Fourth fare. Grab a hand crafted hot dog (and as gourmet as a dog can get) at Dat Dog. Dat Dog recently opened on Freret Street and has been changing the way us New Orleanians think about hot dogs. Their menu features everything from traditional wieners to kielbasas and more. If hot dogs aren’t your thing, enjoy a hamburger at one of ourtop five burger places in the Big Easy.
