More than two years after Hurricane Katrina, the sparkle is back on the tourist trail as the New Orleans' recovery continues. Much work remains and some popular spots have yet to return, while others may never do so. But tourist dollars are helping, according to the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau. New Orleans has many fine restaurants -- Arnaud's, Broussard's, Luke, Muriel's, Bourbon House, GW Fins and the Court of Two Sisters among them. But budget-minded travelers may find two of them especially rewarding.

The only questions six years ago when the tradition started in Havre de Grace were why had no one thought of it before, and why did so few people show up for the first one. This year, the event drew a reasonably healthy crowd that was very well-behaved, considering the nature of the festivities, being a traditional last hurrah before the fasting season of Lent. The event, of course, is the Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Parade that came to full blossom last week on Bourbon Street in Havre de Grace.

In the swamps outside of New Orleans, we pitch a tent on a hot summer night for $12, fine tune a black plastic radio to the blues on WWOZ and lie down in misery with a cooler of ice between us.Insects bomb the thin nylon tent, ambitious mosquitoes among them finding their way to our ankles, and we hug the cooler for relief, real or imagined, praying that sleep will come before the ice melts.On the radio a bluesman wails across the bayou: "I asked my baby if she could stand to see me cry, she said 'Ralphie Boy, I could stand to see you buried alive.

CRESCENT CITY, Calif. - These are the facts in this hiccup of a town on California's far north coast: Most tourists drive through as fast as they can, while Aleutian Canada geese love the place. More and more of the once nearly extinct wildfowl return every year for a leisurely spring visit. Recognizing that, the Del Norte County town is trying to turn the Aleutian into the goose that lays the golden egg of ecotourism. To the extent that Crescent City is known at all, it's as the home of Pelican Bay State Prison.

Clarence's Taste of New Orleans serves up exuberant Crescent City cuisine that practically pummels your taste buds with flavor. Chef and owner Clarence Hill, a New Orleans native, believes that if a little spice is good, more is better. Unfortunately, these days, any mention of New Orleans brings to mind Hurricane Katrina, one of the great tragedies of our time. But this ramshackle little restaurant, tucked into an easy-to-miss corner of Edgewood, is a happy place. Poor:]

The first thing you need to know about the Big Easy is that it was a lot easier to get here than the last time I visited New Orleans. Got a cheap flight into Jackson, Miss., and the difference in fare for driving a couple of hours paid for the rental car for the whole week and - if I can get a reservation - dinner at Emeril's restaurant in the warehouse district. My previous trip, in January 1976, was quite a bit more involved. I drove here from Southern California with two friends during winter break with the intention of visiting the Crescent City and then continuing on to Miami to scare up some tickets for Super Bowl X. For some reason, I can't possibly expect to remember, we decided to stay in New Orleans, probably because of all the great libraries.
