Way Down Yonder in New Orleans

February 13-18, 2022

 

 

Let the Good Times Roll as you travel to New Orleans during the build-up to Mardi Gras festivities! We’ll enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of The Big Easy as we explore this exciting and historic city.
 
Cruise the Mighty Mississippi on an authentic paddlewheel boat as we enjoy a traditional Cajun lunch. Visit a swamp and explore the wildlife there. Tour a factory that builds the colorful and fanciful Mardi Gras floats that celebrate the city’s largest festival. Step back in time at the historic Oak Alley Plantation, and more.
 
NOTE: We will NOT be in New Orleans on the actual date of Mardi Gras, which is on Tuesday, March 1 in 2022.
