Visit the Big Easy, the birthplace of jazz and a city unlike any other. Between Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest you’ll find countless opportunities to hear and participate in a vibrant music scene. Experience Louisiana’s Cajun and Creole cuisines just as they’re supposed to taste, spiced with hot weather and served with good music on the air, maybe even eaten aboard an old-fashioned Mississippi River paddle boat. From the elegant decay of the historic French Quarter to the swamps and bayous teeming with wildlife, New Orleans’ charm is both refined and exotic.
French Quarter Walking Tour: You don’t need a Jackson Square tarot reader to tell you that you’ll enjoy a walking tour of the French Quarter. Wander Bourbon Street, find something tasty at the French Market, and explore the hallowed halls of St. Louis Cathedral. The future looks very bright – New Orleans’ oldest and most iconic neighborhood is on your horizon.
Swamp Tour: There’s no telling what wild things you might encounter on a boat tour of New Orleans’ surrounding swamps. Take a walk on NOLA’s wild side to see alligators, snakes, birds, and other critters like you’ll never see them on the Discovery Channel. Just keep your hands inside the boat – this is real life.
