Group to NO

by lukksa

Bringing a motorcoach of seniors to NO. Will be coming from jackson. Looking for a nice river drive, antebellum home tour, city tour (step-on-guide), swamp tour, etc. Looking for recommendations for all of the above categories and any other suggestions for this type of group. Thanks for any info.

I would recommend contacting the New Orleans CVB for a quick start. They will be very accommodating and will most likely assist you with coordinating the trip since their job is to promote tourism within the city and surrounding areas. Their services are free to you since they are paid via tourism tax by the city/county/state departments who depend upon them to bring business to the area via marketing and bookings.

Inform them of the quantity of people, the itinerary in mind, and activities in which you are looking to participate and they should hook you up with a tour guide or at least provide you with the names and numbers for each activity. It is, at least, a start and will save you lots of legwork with one phone call.

Have fun! It is one of my favorite cities in which to host conferences!!

Not a tour, but I think they'd really like the World War II Museum.

Travel Tips for New Orleans

Oh That Crescent City Cuisine...

by saccharinicity

New Orleans cuisine is out of this world! Here are some popular dishes you should try while in the Big Easy...

Beignet (ben-YAY) -
A square-shaped french doughnut...deep-fried dough covered in confectioner's sugar. You must try one of these during your visit. Try them at the Cafe du Monde or Cafe Beignet.

Etouffee (AY-too-fay) -
Usually served as seafood etouffee: crawfish and shrimp over rice with loads of spices. Similar to gumbo. Try it at the Court of Two Sisters.

Andouille (an-doo-ee) -
Andouille is a spicy sausage used in jambalaya and gumbo or with red beans and rice.

Gumbo -
A thick "stew" usually served over rice. Gumbo is quite hearty and filled with meats such as poultry, pork or seafood, vegetables and spices.

Jambalaya (juhm-buh-LY-ah)
Jambalaya is a rice-based concoction which includes almost anything under the sun, but usually chicken, ham, shrimp, vegetables and tons of seasoning.

Muffaletta (moo-fuh-LUTT-ah) -
A delicious italian sandwich born in New Orleans by a Sicilian immigrant. Huge in size, many places let you order a half- or quarter-muffaletta as even this is anough to usually feed a single person. A loaf of muffaletta bread (similar to foccacia) is split and filled with olive salad and layered in italian meats and cheeses. Try this at Napoleon House or at Central Grocery where it was invented.

Po' boy (POH - boi) -
A sub sandwich served on french bread stuffed with fried seafood or other meats. A "dressed" po' boy includes tomato, lettuce, and pickles. I never had a po' boy I didn't like in New Orleans.

Praline (PRAH-leen) -
Ah the waft of sweet pralines while window-shopping on Royal Street. It is a delight. Pralines are a tasty little sweet made of nuts (usually pecans) and brown sugar syrup. You can usually get a free nibble in any praline shop to try them out. I usually stop by Southern Candymakers on Decatur and pop a sample in my mouth while wandering the Quarter.

Chickory (chick-o-ree) coffee -
The roots of this herb are used to flavor the coffee here. It is delicious! You can find this many places, including the ever-famous Cafe du Monde. Order your chickory coffee and plate of beignets.

Crawfish -
Spicy freshwater shellfish. Like little lobsters, these are called crawfish, crayfish or mudbugs. To eat a crawfish "suck the head and eat the tail!". Your server will be able to fill you in on how to do this.

Hurricane -
A strong and very sweet alcoholic drink made from lime, passion fruit syrup and rum. Try one at Pat O'Brien's while lounging on the patio. This is apparently where the drink originated.

Dirty Rice -
Fried rice cooked with onions, peppers, celery, stock and giblets.

King Cake -
A large pastry topped with candied sugar dyed usually in the Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold and green and often with a filling inside. During the Mardi Gras season, part of the tradition is to bake a tiny plastic baby doll inside and whoever ends up getting the piece with the doll in it has to buy the king cake for the next year. The Court of Two Sisters has this available to try during their jazz brunch.

Mardi Gra Beads

by Holliejo777

Don't leave without Mardi gra beads for souveniours. You can buy them in fun shops along with other fun Mardi gra merchandise. Or you can get them from people in the streets and parades. I left with all kinds of beads different colors and styles that I now coordinate with my outfits at home for creativity..

Visit Patout's on Bourbon...

by AdriannaTex

Visit Patout's on Bourbon Street for great live Zydeco music. My fondest memory is being picked up by our swamp boat tour guide (Cap'n Ron), driving a distance to the boat, and getting out of the van to see for the first time that he's missing a leg. He hobbles out of the van, around the dock, and then into the boat. He hops back and forth from ... to ... (insert proper boat terms for front and back) during his tour, teetering closely to the edge to point out gators. He spiced up the tour with some racy jokes, starting with fairly innocent ones to test us out. When he felt comfortable that we would be okay with dirtier ones, he told them in his great Cajun accent. (Of course, there were some good Boudreaux and Tibideaux ones in the mix.) On the way back to the hotel, he drives through a daiquiri shop and orders himself a daiquiri with three extra shots. The whole time we wanted to ask: Did a gator get your leg? I highly recommend his tour!!

Hanging Out in the French Quarter

by Tom_Fields

This is one of those places where you can enjoy yourself simply wandering about and taking it all in. You don't HAVE to be going anywhere. Just look around, and something interesting will certainly turn up. Browse in the quaint shops, have a drink, or just watch people go by. The French Quarter is endlessly fascinating. From what I've been told, the French Quarter, which stands on slightly higher ground than most of the city, suffered rather limited damage from Katrina. I hope that most of the places shown here are still the way I remember them. They constitute a vital part of America's heritage and culture.

Bourbon Street

by Amareyui

Bourbon Street must be the front runner for the honor of "America's Alcohol and Sex Theme Park", if there is ever going to be one. The Big Easy probably doesn't get more "anything goes" than here on this party crazy street. I still believe, the sight of those men waving eagerly to attract the attention of the prostitutes standing on the balcony above, just to get a hold on some beads, has to be one of the funniest moment of the trip.
But because of my inability to enjoy the party scene, I don't find New Orleans to be quite as interesting as many others do.
