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 – 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 also tour the whimsical San Francisco Plantation, c. 1856, with architecture inspired by the gothic steamboats of the day for the prominent Creole family who called it home. How about a pub crawl tonight? (FB,L) 

Day 4

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! A plate full of fresh, hot beignets start your morning at world famous Café du Monde. Next visit the National World War II Museum, a four-block complex covering literally every aspect of the War and the Greatest Generation it produced. Take a break from your exploration at lunch time and head to the Stage Door Canteen where your meal is served up with a nostalgic musical review. The day ends with the Downtown Irish Club’s Twilight Parade slowly snaking its way through the city. (CB,L)

Day 5

The morning opens with a true New Orleans tradition: Breakfast at Brennan’s. Save room for the Bananas Foster, a dish invented here. Only in New Orleans can you get dessert with breakfast! A short drive to the airport and your adventure comes to a close. (FB)
