A new company connects locals with travelers to experience NOLA in a whole new way.

A local company called FUHWE (a Caribbean expression meaning “for us”) offers a website and app that connects travelers with locals to share in an authentic experience that is unique to the city. Experiences range from walking tours to fitness groups and much more. One recent experience, the Healthy Happy Hour offered by April Dupre’s company Footprints to Fitness, featured a yoga/Pilates class at The Roosevelt Hotel, followed by a Happy Hour of light menu items (most of them Eat Fit NOLA-approved) and cocktails in the Fountain Lounge
FUHWE offers a great opportunity to introduce visitors to New Orleans, or to even be a explorer in your own backyard. In addition to the Footprints to Fitness offerings, there are more health and fitness experiences being added in the sports category each day! Other categories include art, culture, history, food/beverage, music and entertainment. Both the explorer and local get to rate each other after the experience, and the explorer writes reviews on the experience. In this way, you can vet which experiences are worth booking. The cost varies depending on the type and length of the activities offered during the experience. FUHWE anticipates expanding to other cities in the future as well, so stay on the lookout for updates. fuhwe.com
