After checking into the Old No. 77 Hotel, it’s time to hit the streets and take in the epicenter of New Orleans – the French Quarter. Stroll through the Garden District, experience the incredible galleries on Royal Street, or swing by city park to tour over 80 sculptures outside the New Orleans Museum of Art. In the evening, get your jazz on with classic cocktails and groovy tunes on Maple Leaf and Frenchman Street.
Today is all about soaking in some history. Take a guided tour of some of the most historic parts of New Orleans with Lucky Bean Tours. End the day feeling full of knowledge and great food with dinner at Compère Lapin as your last stop.
Head out of town for a beautiful ride to the Whitney Plantation. Founded in 1752 and set right on the Mississippi River, it’s the only museum in American dedicated to sharing the story of the African slave trade and how life was for those working on the plantations. After absorbing its important history, cruise over to your cozy B&B for the night, T’Frere’s. From newly renovated rooms to a magical courtyard and elegant sunroom, it’s the perfect place to unwind and enjoy incredible local cuisine.
After a satisfying breakfast, hop on a boat for a two-hour ecotour with Beyond the Bayou in Louisiana’s verdant swamps. Spot wildlife, including gators and osprey, and learn more about the unique ecosystem while floating through the stunning scenery. Once you’re swamped out, fill up on a Cajun lunch from Poche’s Market before catching a ride back to New Orleans.
