There are so many reasons Kathy Petrino really likes to write about her prolific travel on her blog. For one thing, she is generous and she likes to share. Not only does she want to visit as many great places as possible in her lifetime, but she wants to share her experiences in a way that makes others want to see the same things. There is also a desire on Kathy’s part to make sure er readers avoid many of the missteps she has made on some trips. The primary reason Kathy Petrino likes to writes about every aspect of her trips is so others have as much fun as she has. And one of her favorite destinations is anywhere o Florida’s Emerald Coast.

Kathy Petrino is well aware that the Emerald Coast, which is Florida’s northern Gulf Coast, was referred to for a long time as the “Redneck Riviera,” but she also wants readers to know that recent years have brought a lot of change. Over the years, the fine sand and funky beach towns have taken on a new personality. In recent years, celebrities and “beautiful people” have adopted the region and spurred a much-needed revitalization, to the point that the region is now called the “Emerald Coast” of Florida. These days, the rich and famous hope beyond that not everyone has gotten the word that the affordable slice of Florida is also gaining much when it comes to class.

In that time, savvy investors have been revitalizing the area with new hotels and condo buildings, including the first-ever five-star resort, called Henderson Beach Resort. So many investments are being made that the town of Seaside (or ‘Seahaven’, for fans of the movie, The Truman Show) has been transformed into one of the most beautiful and eco-friendly towns in Florida; their 80acres are now being studied in architecture schools. It’s a great place to visit and you might want to live there.

There are many interesting reasons why Kathy Petrino loves to write about her travels. Among the best reasons is because of her generous nature. She has a strong desire to use her constant travels all over the world as a template of sorts. She feels that, if she writes passionately about her travels, she will encourage others to make the same trips and keep the travel economies in those places flourishing. Kathy Petrino feels that the more she tells them, the less likely they will be to make the same mistakes. Kathy knows that the more people know, the better the trip will be.

One of Kathy Petrino’s favorite tourist destinations happens to be New Orleans, Louisiana. The primary image of “The Big Easy” conjures up many things, especially when it comes to spicy food and great music and impromptu parades and marches. New Orleans has suffered many setbacks, especially the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, but it’s impossible to deny the life force of New Orleans. There is a reason why the city’s motto is “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” (“Let the good times roll!”); it comes to them naturally.

One of the finest and best ways to take in the spirit of New Orleans is just to walk around the city. Kathy Petrino recommends checking out all three main neighborhoods, along with many of the best and most popular bars and restaurants anywhere, featuring the great Cajun food the city is known for. Then, she recommends heading to the Riverfront/Warehouse District, which has seen an amazing revitalization over the last few years. Quite a few shops, art galleries, and trendy restaurants have arisen from the ashes of closed warehouses and they are certainly worth wandering through. Keeping with tradition, everyone will want to visit the infamous French Quarter, which is dominated by old-fashioned 18th century French homes with wrought-iron balconies, but there are also many restaurants featuring some of the greatest food anywhere. That is in addition to huge numbers of bars playing the best jazz in the city.
