VIP Ladies of New Orleans Share Their Story & NOLA Favorites

VIP Ladies of New Orleans Share Their Story & NOLA Favorites

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities. Although I love the food and architecture, what I truly love about New Orleans are the people and their love for the city. One group of people in New Orleans who are personifying this pride that I adore are the VIP Ladies. This group is a benevolent society that is dedicated to serving the community and I am honored to highlight this organization. Learn more about the VIP ladies below and be sure to tag us in images in images of the work going on in your southern towns. The VIP ladies were also kind enough to give an insiders guide to their favorite places to visit in the city. Be sure to explore and support these places on your next trip to New Orleans!
