rainy day suggestions

New Orleans is no stranger to a rainy day. And even though we are lucky enough to have sunshine for the better part of the year, an occasional rainy day is inevitable and can be a big letdown for many. If you find yourself in the midst of a rainy with nothing to do, your New Orleans physical therapy clinic has several suggestions.

Breakfast

Everybody knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Don’t let a little wet weather keep you stuck at home where the only breakfast foods you have are oatmeal and Fruit Loops. Get a great view of Jackson Square and the French Market by having your morning meal at Stanley.

Stanley, right next door to Stella!, is part of a twin tribute to Tennessee Williams and his characters in A Streetcar Named Desire. Stanley offers the ideal setting for a rainy day breakfast with its wide French doors and windows facing the historic French Market.

At Stanley, the chef serves classic New Orleans comfort food with a unique twist. Whether it’s an Omelet Sandwich or Eggs Stanley, there is something for everyone.

Shopping

On the next rainy day, indulge in a day of shopping at the Shops at Canal Place or the Outlet Collection at Riverwalk. This is where you will find shops that feature a wide range of clothes, fashion jewelry and shoes.

Riverwalk was fully renovated in early 2014 and is a great place to spend the day.

Lunch

The Gumbo Stop, located inside a restored 1790s cottage, is a great place to experience contemporary and traditional Creole cuisine. They have a full menu that includes salads, sandwiches and an impressive wine list. Enjoy fresh local fish and daily specials in the casual elegance of The Gumbo Stop.

Movies

See what’s playing at any of the fine movie theaters in New Orleans. But if you want to watch your movie in luxury, the Theaters at Canal Place should be your destination.

Enjoy flavorful dishes as you relax in a high-back leather chair, the ultimate comfort, while watching a great movie in an all-digital cinema. The leather seating is complemented with tables and drink holders, which is quite appropriate as there is a full bar with select spirits and wine. It will certainly change the way you think about movie theaters.

Dinner

Dante’s Kitchen is a small restaurant that offers a variety of soups, salads, seafood and many other entrees with a little twist of New Orleans. So whether you are dreaming about Seafood Hot Pot full of calamari, crab and mussels or in the mood for Bone-In Pork Chop with collard greens and cheddar cheese grit cake, Dante has you covered.

Night Life

New Orleans offers a plethora of magical places to catch some Jazz, have a drink or hang out with friends.

Don’t let a little rain ruin your day. As you can see, New Orleans offers plenty of places to visit for food, shopping, entertainment and drinks.
