by lukksa

Could someone suggest a Swamp Tour around New orleans for a group of seniors? Thanks for any info

Re: swamp tour

by johnfromoz

We had a wonderful tour of the swamp with Honey Island tours.Here is their website
http://www.honeyislandswamp.com/index.html
The staff were very friendly, the boats comfortable & easy to see things from. We found the tour was very informative & we got some great photos including the one on my homepage. Hope this helps & you have a wonderful time. Would also highly recommend the excellent tour of Laura Plantation, website http://www.lauraplantation.com/
Much better tour than Oak Alley thought the gardens & exterior at Oak Alley are stunning, inside tour very bland.

Travel Tips for New Orleans

The Cucullu Buildings

by VeronicaG

New Orleans' graceful structures ornamented with the characteristic iron balconies are eye-catchers. The historic marker sites these buildings as Cucullu Row.

Near the French Market, Manuel Simar Cucullu and Christoval G. De Armas constructed three identical buildings in 1833 as a private commercial venture that became known as The Red Stores, an establishment carrying grocery items. The store's convenient location must have made it a popular stop in those days.

These buildings are actually replicas of the originals. A fire destroyed one of the structures in 1840 and it was rebuilt in a different style. They were demolished in the 1930's to expand the Bazaar Market.

Jazz

by goingsolo

Not surprisingly, New Orleans has great jazz. Its played all over, in bars and nightclubs, sidewalk cafes and even streetside by performers. Sitting in the French Market Cafe on a sunny Sunday afternoon listening to jazz.

Get your fortune told at The Bottom of The Cup!(Mine was alarmingly accurate..) Eat white chocolate bread pudding at the Commanders Palalce! Drink Hurricanes at Pat O'Briens. I went there with a friend from Ireland. I loved the people, after dealig withthe relative unfriendliness in Shreveport, New Orleans was wonderful!

The Riverbend

by hquittner

This is an area that used to be (pre-Katrina) full of knowledgeable tourists who got off the streetcar instead of continuing 7 more stops to the end of the line. At this point St. Charles Ave terminates because it approaches the levee. The trolley turns right here and procedes on Carrollton Ave. As you can see the street is still there (someday the streetcar will return and we will celebrate it). There is a little "parklet" (called Fisher Pl. on a brass plaque), not on any map (1,2) with a small monument to nobody and another to somebody I cannot identify. Another sign proclaims that this is Carrollton neighborhood(4; see the levee beyond me). Just beyond the monument (1) to the right out of the picture is a famous oyster bar called Cooter Brown's.(there are other VT Tips on it). Just beyond the ongoing street to the left is the Camellia Grill (another Restaurant Tip, opened again yesterday). Across to the right is the 1850's Carrollton Courthouse (pictured in my streetcar Tip of yore) and a chain (brown roofed building) with quiches (La Madelaine). Beyond to the left is a strip-mall with Chinese food, and adjacent Japanese and other eateries and ice-cream vendors (3). At the end of the mall is GB's Grill (one of our Tips). There are other places to eat that I have not covered,so the good times may again be rolling if the trolley rolls. Obviously oysters and other foods.

Joanie on a Pony

Dedication of New Orleans' new Place de France

Remarks by Ambassador François Bujon de l'Estang

Place de France, New Orleans, LA
November 14, 1999

Mr. Mayor,
Monsignor Morin,
Distinguished Guests,

In 1429, a young woman inspired by celestial voices freed the French city of Orleans which was under siege from English troops. Jeanne d'Arc, Joan of Arc, the maid of Orleans.. remains to this day the symbol of resistance to the enemy invader, independence when French soil is attacked, courage in time of adversity when all but hope seems to have vanished...

Because Jeanne is so important a symbol for French people, I was quite pleased to find in new Orleans the exact original replica of the statue that stands prominently in Orleans, France : it was presented to the City of New Orleans as a gift from the people of France by President Charles de Gaulle, in 1959, during his state visit here.

The presence of Joan of Arc in this city, the namesake and distant cousin of the city she liberated, underlines our attachment to a common heritage. The particular history of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana is a reminder to us of how long and deep the relationship between our two countries has been. The statue of Bienville, afew hundred yards from here, that we also dedicated jointly a few months ago, also bears witness to this exceptional relationship between New Orleans and France...

..Mr. Mayor, in the name of the French authorities, allow me to express to you and to the people of New Orleans our most profound gratitude for returning France and France’s greatest national heroine to the heart of the city, and for giving us this wonderful occasion to celebrate once again the importance of the historical links, as well as the long-standing links of affection, that unite France and the City of New orleans and that unite our two nations.

Vive la France !

Vive les Etats-Unis d’Amérique !

Vive l’Amitié Franco-Américaine ! The inscription on the pedestal of St. Joan's statue reads as follows:

JOAN OF ARC

MAID OF ORLEANS

1412 - 1431

Gift of the People of France

The tour guide referred to the bronze statue of Joan of Arc as "Joanie on a Pony" The statue is an exact copy of the 1880 Emmanuel Fremiet equestrian statue of Joan located at Place des Pyramides, Paris. It was given to New Orleans by the French in 1958, but the city didn't have the money to put it up, so it was not erected until 1972. It was gilded in 1985. When Harrah's casino was built in 1999, it had to be moved and is now at the corner of St. Philip and Decatur Streets. Many years ago, this place was the site of the fruit complex of the Farmer's Market
