There are tons of fun things to do in New Orleans. To help structure our plans, we've posted
our weekend itinerary below and welcome everyone to join us.
Looking for something else to do? No problem. We've also listed some other things to do to help
you build your own funfilled weekend.
Of all the plantations in New Orleans, Oak Alley is most famous. I've been on the grounds but have never taken the tour. The tours start every hour on the hour and last about 45 minutes. If you get there early enough, you can catch a quick meal at their cafe.
They also offer discounts for active military, senior citizens, and AAA but we have no idea what that discount is.
To all you U of I graduates, we recommend everybody bring in their old college IDs
I went on the Steamboat Natchez lunch cruise my first time in New Orleans and I was pleasantly surpried at how good the food was. In fact, I ate my first plate of red beans and rice that day and it was pretty spectacular. Granted its been quite a few years but I have a feeling spending the money on dinner will be worth it. If you're curious, the menus are available online. Boarding is at 6:00 p.m. The cruise ends at 9:00 p.m.

We figure by this time, we'll all be looking for a financial windfall. We've got to hit it big some day..
By popular request we have decided to akip the cemetery tour and move the brunch up from 12:00 pm to 9:00 am!
Matt and I have never been here which is why it's on our itinerary!
Seriously though, this is one of those pricey places so buyer beware.
