Daily Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to New Orleans, a city renowned for its ability to make a party out of every situation.  It has been said, "If the hurricane's too weak, just add rum." That pretty much sums it up! Rest well in conveniently located accommodations overlooking the famed French Quarter.  Your welcome dinner is served at the Court of Two Sisters, hidden away under a blanket of blooming wisteria. Sheraton New Orleans Hotel – 4 nights (D)

Day 2

Take a driving tour focusing on the city beyond downtown including the beautiful Garden District and one of the area's unique above-ground cemeteries. In the evening learn the secrets of great Cajun and Creole chefs with dinner at the New Orleans School of Cooking, followed by a horse-drawn carriage ride through the French Quarter.  Is it haunted? You'll have to come see for yourself...if you dare! (FB, D)

Day 3

An hour's drive outside the city places you in the heart of Plantation Country with visits to the breathtaking Houmas House, the grandest of the Mississippi River sugar estates, built in 1840.  You'll visit the new Mississippi River Road Museum and see 'gators up close and personal on a Cajun Pride Swamp Tour.  Lunch is served in the Dixie Cafe - how cool is that? (FB,L)
