New Orleans Holiday

November 30–December 3, 2021

Unpack once and enjoy four nights at one hotel in the city’s legendary French Quarter filled with historic restaurants, jazz clubs & shops. While in the “Quarter”, 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. Experience a New Orleans City Tour of the Garden District, Longue Vue Gardens & House and an above ground cemetery. 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.
No trip to New Orleans would be complete without the famous tastes of local cuisine, so be sure to stop for beignets and café au lait at Café du Monde, and take home some recipes after your entertaining dinner at the New Orleans School of Cooking.

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. Don’t miss this chance to enjoy one of the most beautiful cities in America.
