Daily Itinerary

Streetcar in New OrleansDay 1

New Orleans celebrates her tricentennial this year. Why not plan a visit (or a return trip) to toast this great city, famous for its food, history and ability to make a party out of every situation, no matter how bleak. I once heard someone say, “If the hurricane is too weak we just add rum.” That pretty much sums it up. Fly to New Orleans and transfer to your well-located Canal Street hotel overlooking the Vieux Carré – perhaps better known as the French Quarter. Dinner tonight is served at the Court of Two Sisters hidden away in the heart of the Quarter. Sheraton New Orleans – 3 nights (D)

Bananas Foster being prepared in New OrleansDay 2

The morning opens with a true New Orleans tradition: Breakfast at Brennan’s. Save room for the Bananas Foster, a dish invented here. Only here will you get dessert with breakfast! Take a driving tour of the city in the afternoon featuring the beautiful Garden District and one of the mysterious above-ground cemeteries. How about a pub crawl once the stars come out? (FB)

Carriage rides in New OrelansDay 3

Much of the day is free to do as much or little as you please. Your Tour Director will provide a long list of suggestions. In the evening, learn the secrets of great Cajun and Creole chefs at the New Orleans School of Cooking, followed by a horse-drawn carriage ride through the romantic French Quarter. (FB,D)

The Victory Belles performingDay 4

Start the day with beignets and café au lait at world-famous Café du Monde. The National WWII Museum has grown into a massive, world-class museum covering four square blocks. To fuel you through your visit, take a midday break in BB’s Stage Door Canteen for lunch with The Victory Belles, a dynamic female vocal trio who celebrate the music of the 1940s in the style of the Andrew Sisters. You’ll also visit the museum’s unique 4-D theatre for their acclaimed production, Beyond All Boundaries. Onward to Biloxi and your fabulous accommodations located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Feeling lucky? Exciting casino action awaits at this MGM resort. Beau Rivage – 2 nights (B,L,D)

Shrimp Boats in New OrleansDay 5

A mid-morning shrimping cruise is followed by a dockside shrimp boil for your lunchtime pleasure. Want to eat like a local? This is it! Discover the gulfside town of Biloxi on a guided tour followed by a visit to Beauvoir, the retirement home of the one and only president of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis, and the neighboring Davis Presidential Library. (FB,L)

New Orleans, LouisianaDay 6

Until our return air is finalized, we can’t yet say what adventures await on the last day, except this: It ends with a drive back to Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans bringing your adventure to a close. (FB)
