Friday, February 19 After our delicious breakfast, we’re doing something we’ve never done before in
WE’RE GOING TO SCHOOL --- COOKING SCHOOL, THAT IS!.
We’re going to the famed New Orleans School of Cooking. Here we will be treated to an entertaining chef as
he prepares our 3-course lunch right in front of us. Oh, and just wait until he prepares our special dessert –
Now, let’s enjoy a little bit of “Mardi Gras” with a visit to Mardi Gras World. This is literally the place where
Mardi Gras magic is made. We’ll walk among towering figures of fantasy and marvel at the skill and
technology that animate the mega-floats.
Then tonight it’s our dinner cruise on the Mississippi. Wonderful food – Wonderful Dixieland Jazz – and, well,
just Wonderful Views as we sail the Mississippi. Built in 1925, it’s the last authentic steamboat still sailing the
Mississippi. (Meals: B, L & D)
Saturday, February 20 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 are just a little
of what we’ll see on this great tour.
After our lunch break, we’ll head out to the Oak Valley Plantation. Established in 1837, and listed on the
National Register of Historic Places, it’s one of the oldest documented plantation home in the lower Mississippi
River Valley. Costumed guides will intrigue you with the legacy of the plantation and historic events that
occurred at this site. And, believe me, you will certainly enjoy the gift shop here. (Meals: B)
