Pickpockets, New Orleans: 7 reviews and 1 photos

  Beware of Pickpockets!
by ATXtraveler

I would definitely warn anyone going to a festival in New Orleans to take heed....

Pickpockets are out there and in force during this celebration. I was speaking to one of the New Orleans Police Officers that actually mentioned that pickpockets from all of the world take their vacations in New Orleans, since this is such easy "picking".

Make sure you only bring one credit card, your ID, and the spending cash you are willing to part with during this week.

Enjoy, and make sure you walk with your hands by your sides like this gentleman.
