A look at New Orleans from all directions.
Begin where Bienville did in 1718 – by the banks of the Mississippi River in the Old French Creole area known as the Vieux Carre. While viewing Jackson Square – the Place de Arms – the historic French Market, and the elegant Creole mansions along the Esplanade, you’ll learn why New Orleans was founded and why it is known as America’s most interesting city.
As we travel back in time we’ll stop for a visit with former citizens in New Orleans’ unique Cities of the Dead – our above ground cemeteries. Crossing peaceful Bayou St. John we enter City Park– 1500 acres of urban forest, with lakes, bayous and magnificent moss-hung oak trees. After a refreshment pause we see the Dueling Oak, where Creole gentlemen settled their "matters of honor" 250 years ago.
Bienville came in Bayou St. John to establish the city. We go out that lovely quiet waterway to Lake Pontchartrain and pause to see a 600 square mile lake with the world’s longest causeway bridge stretching over 24 miles straight across the center.
Uptown in New Orleans we travel along beside the streetcars on picturesque St. Charles Avenue past Audubon Park (site of the 1884 World Centennial), Tulane andLoyola Universities – countless avenue mansions and the city’s renowned Garden District.
Back to the future and New Orleans vibrant Central Business District and Superdome – where the world comes to hold events and do business.Reserve Now
