Thanksgiving in New Orleans

Day 1
  • Arrived. We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard on St. Charles and Canal St.  It was a great location for getting around.
  • Dinner at Luke.
Day 2
  • Jackson Square - fairly quiet due to Thanksgiving
  • Cafe du Monde for coffee and beneigts - a bit overrated as other places had better coffee and beignets
  • Dinner at Cafe Adeliade - good food but they seems a bit understaffed
Day 3
  • Walking tour of St. Louis Cemetery
  • Lunch at Sweet Grill
  • Walking tour of French Quarter
  • Dinner at Brigstons - fabulous!
Day 4
  • Chalmette Battlefield - great history on the War of 1812 and the Battle of New Orleans
  • National WWII Museum - great museum for general WWII history but I sought out the personal artifacts
  • Dinner at Commanders Palace - deserves its reputation
Day 5
  • Natchez brunch - fun cruise on the river with a cool jazz band, Duke Heitger's Steamboat Stompers
  • Literary walking tour
  • Flight home
Things for next time
  • Cabildo/Presbytere Museums
  • 1850 House Museum
  • See a jazz show somewhere
