{Travel By Kiwi} Travel Divas hit the Road to Essence Fest | Hilton Riveside New Orleans Friday 10 July, 2015

Guess what guys?! Yes I took another roadtrip and another fun summer trip with the Travel Divas. If you recall last month, I went on my first international trip to Cancun with this fun agency and this is my second summer trip with them. I have a few more trips but lets talk about my road to Essence with them! We filled a big charter bus of divas (and a few divos) en route to one of the biggest Music Festivals in the nation at Essence Festival. We boarded this bus from Atlanta to go to New Orleans.

The Travel Divas booked us all accommodations at The Hilton Riverside in New Orleans. This was my first time at this hotel and in this section of New Orleans. This hotel was conveinently near the convention center where all of the Essence Festival activities were happening at. It was very close walking distance so it was perfect accomodations for all the actions. I had many friends who travels seperately outside of the Travel Divas trip and they didn’t get hotels as close. So if you are considering staying near the convention center for Essence, this hotel was perfect!  travel-divas-essence-festival-2015-5 travel-divas-essence-festival-2015-6 The hotel was cute, it had it’s own cafe are where you can order coffee, Starbucks coffee, breakfast and treats throughout the day. I only utilized it a few times because I was so busy, but I loved the option of Starbucks on site!

I have been to New Orleans several times…but I’ve never actually been on a Bourbon Street balcony! This was one of my bucketlist request to throw beads off Bourbon St…so checkmark for me! Bourbon Cowboy had beads for us to throwoff to the street patrons as well as Travel Divas were giving red bags away! Super fun!
