I am terribly excited about this. I think we're going to have a splendid time. We have gotten a reservation for the main hotel, and signed up for all the special events; this should be a great time.
This will be our first trip to New Orleans, so we're taking an extra few days to see some of the sights. But even two days isn't much time. So I keep obsessing over what to do in our limited time there.
Here's my current list:
- Breakfast at Camellia Grill
- Beignets at Cafe du Monde
- Muffuletta from Central Grocery (unless muffulettas get added to the festival list)
- New Orleans Jazz
- ghost tour
- history tour
- streetcar rides
- at least one haute cuisine dinner
Edit to add: New Orleans Cooking School
This will be such a blast.
