What To Expect
Next, visit Jackson Square, an honorary landmark to New Orleans’ war hero Andrew Jackson. See Louisiana’s Cabildo and Presbytere museums and the Pontalba Apartments, the oldest apartment buildings in the United States! Pass by the square’s historic open‐air artist colony as you make your way to one of New Orleans’ famous ‘Cities of the Dead’ to experience the bewitching and spectacular mausoleum system. Hear of piracy and voodoo on Bayou St John, a known pirate waterway and the reputed location of voodoo rituals by the infamous Marie Laveau. Then return to town along the world‐famous St Charles Streetcar route, passing through the extravagant Garden District. Snap photos of opulent mansions that served as former residences for the kings and queens of Mardi Gras, admire the beauty of Tulane and Loyola Universities, and see the acclaimed Audubon Zoo. You'll have time for a self-guided tour of the Bestoff Sculpture Garden, plus a stop at Cafe du Monde for their famous beignets or other refreshments (own expense.)
