Oak Alley Plantation
Visit Website

The plantation tours run every hour through most of the day. So due to the high likelihood of hangovers on Saturday morning, we may push this back a few hours. Please let us know if you're interested in going so we can schedule the best time for everyone.

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.  

Adults: $15
Students: $7.50
Children: $3.75 

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

Riverboat Jazz Cruise
Visit Website

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.

Adults: $33.50
Children 6-12: $16.75
