Experience the festive holiday atmosphere in New Orleans on this five-day getaway. Unpack once and enjoy four nights at one hotel in the city’s legendary French Quarter filled with historic restaurants, jazz clubs and shops. Enjoy a French Quarter Walking Tour featuring the St. Louis Cathedral, Bourbon Street, Pirates Alley and the French Marketplace. Board the Steamboat Natchez for a relaxing and informative cruise on the Mississippi River.
On another day, a New Orleans City Tour will provide visits to the Garden District, Longue Vue Gardens and House, and an above-ground cemetery. While traveling outside of NewOrleans, visit Oak Alley Plantation, one of the state’s most visited antebellum homes, featuring a quarter-mile long canopy of giant live oak trees, believed to be 300-years old. Time at leisure during this program will allow you to experience New Orleans and the French Quarter at your own pace. Cafes, art galleries and shopping are steps away from your hotel. Maybe visit the Mardi Gras Museum, World War II Museum or take a peek at Santa’s Quarter, a popular holiday store.
Of course, no trip to Nawlins would be complete without the famous tastes of local cuisine. Experience a local holiday tradition with a Reveilion dinner, stop for beignets and café au lait at Café du Monde, take home recipes after your entertaining dinner at the New Orleans School of Cooking, and enjoy dinner at the historic Court of Two Sisters. On your last evening, enjoy a visit to the Celebration in the Oaks, located at New Orleans City Park. With over a million lights, this is one of the most spectacular holiday lights festivals in the country. For over 30 years, City Park has transformed into a magical winter spectacle with famous oaks swathed in twinkling lights scattered throughout its 25 acres.
