We first stop by the French Market, for a taste of New Orleans' rich culinary history. We'll then head out to the old U.S. Mint and the stately mansions along Esplanade Ave. Here you can dream of what life must have been like 100 years ago, and see the vibrancy that still remains.
Next we'll walk into St. Louis Cemetery #3.
One of the fascinating things about a New Orleans cemetery is that everything is above ground, since the city technically lies below sea level. For this reason, St. Louis is a fascinating journey into the quirks about this city, and you will see some famous residents as well.
Riding along peaceful Bayou St. John, we view houses from the late 1700's.
Driving through City Park, see the antique carousel & centuries-old live oaks.
Along Lake Pontchartrain's shores our levee system is explained and the longest of all Causeway bridges is seen.
After all this outdoors exploring, it's time to move into a guided tour of the Longue Vue Mansion and Gardens. This exquisite 8 acre estate is definitely worth the time we'll spend walking its halls.
Then we'll head uptown to Carrolton, the Tulane and Loyola Universities, the 160-year-old streetcar line and St. Charles Avenue's grand colonial mansions.
Finally, we'll head back downtown around the Superdome and through the heart of the business district before returning to your hotel.
You will see how vibrant and exciting New Orleans is again today, and we look forward to sharing our home with you.
