Staycation: Self-care in Mid-City

Just wanna get out of this house?!? Here’s all you need to have the best Staycation here in the Mid-City. 

I get it, you might think what’s the point of a staycation when I know everything about the city. But it’s a little different when you live on the block. Things in the Garden District are different than Mid-City. Walking outside, you get used to the same cornerstore, same restaurants, and while heading out to a new hood is easy on a bike, waking up and walking to a new coffee shop can have its own perks and maybe just help freshen up some things while we all stay socially distant.

With that thinking in mind, we asked our friends and fam where they would want to stay to get out of their own neighborhood for a weekend. If you don’t know someone you can crash with, here’s an option from a local who owns and operates this home for $93 a night. It has a fresh, white and blue palette throughout, and you can even dine al fresco at the table on the covered deck.


Let ALL that light in. Ahhhhhh

What to do in Mid-City for your Staycation

But if you don’t wanna eat out, go to Big Easy Fresh Market to get all you need for brunch, dinner, or just a snack — or want to dance with a new bottle of wine.
