beignetGrab your beignets and café au lait and go enjoy breakfast on the Riverfront. Relax on the levee while watching the ships cruise up and down the Mississippi River.

When checking out the different locations, remember to explore the neighboring shopping venues like art galleries, local clothing stores, and enjoy some of the cocktail lounges along the way.

For dinner, enjoy a hands-on New Orleans School of Cooking class that will explain the origins of Louisiana cuisine and will teach you how to make signature savory dishes.

After dinner, take a taxi to Frenchmen Street for an evening dedicated to music and cocktails. Frenchmen Street boasts multiple music venues that range from traditional jazz to rock, from reggae to Latin, and from Bluegrass to the Blues. In addition, the musical clubs on Frenchmen Street offer exciting drinks and little to no cover.
