We’re taking reservations right now.
Have you ever seen the French Quarters? Do you like real Dixieland jazz? Have you ever taken
a "swamp boat" ride into the bayou? Have you ever had coffee in the French Market? Have you
ever tried real New Orleans style food? Have you ever had a beignet for breakfast or a muffalata
sandwich for lunch? All of this & more is in store during this adventure.
Look at all we've got lined up for you this week!
Friday, March 5 - We'll leave Camden from our departure location at the Wal-Mart store,
Highway 641 N. in Camden at 7:00 a..m . We'll arrive in New Orleans mid-afternoon at our
French Quarters area hotel. After check in & some time to freshen up,
we arranged some free time in the French Quarters.
Saturday, March 6 After our delicious breakfast, we'll board our coach for a full day of
adventure. A local, professional tour guide will join us this morning to give us a look at the New
Orleans that we've only heard about. Centuries old architecture sets the scene for a tour
through the city. Our guide will usher us through the city's most fascinating neighborhoods &
landmarks all the while sharing interesting facts & fabled stories you'll never forget. The French
Quarters, Jackson Square, the Cabildo, historic Esplanade Avenue & St. Louis Cemetery, the
“city of the dead” with its above ground tombs & beautiful homes are just a little of what we’ll see
on this great tour. We’ll also visit the Katrina destroyed 9th Ward and see the damaged home
of the great entertainer Fats Domino who survived by staying in his attic crawl space for days.
This afternoon, we’ll board swamp boats and listen to our hearts pound as we creep into the still
waters of the Louisiana wetlands. From the comfort and safety of our boats, we’ll travel deep
into the bayous and learn about the fascinating people who make their homes in the swamps
and the animals that live there. Bring your camera and lots of film. We should encounter egrets,
white-tailed deer, mink, nutria, and, of course, we’ve never been on a swamp tour without
meeting face to face, eye ball to eye ball, nose to nose,
jaw to jaw with those “nice, friendly and handsome” gators.
Whew! Now it's back to our hotel to freshen up and to take our dinner cruise down the
Mississippi aboard the Steamboat Natchez, all the while being entertained by one of the best
Dixieland Jazz bands in New Orleans. After dinner, it’s back to our hotel, or, if you wish, you'll
have plenty of time to explore more of the French Quarters, or
Harrah's Casino (if you've got money to lose) all night long, if you wish,
since we can walk back to our room. (Meals: B & L & D)
Sunday, March 7 - Today will finish our memorable jourey arriving in Camden at approximately 6
p.m. allowing us plenty of time for movies, games with door prizes and,
of course, a good nap or two. (Meals: B)
