Day 1: Tourist Sights
As considerably as seasoned tourists like to say they want to journey like the locals, most tourist points of interest are there for a explanation. On working day 1, we like to knock out as lots of touristy matters as feasible to have additional adaptability to wander later on in the trip. I know this is a sizeable record for the 1st day, but several of these are shut to every other and speedy stops.

However I would not lump this with all the common tourist sights, executing this very first will give you a bigger appreciation for every little thing else you take in and do on your excursion.
Oh, did we point out that you get bottomless drinks? They had wine, beer, mimosas, and bloody marys. It was a entertaining way to commence the day but a little bit harmful for those people of us (me!) with tiny to no self-manage.
This was our very first cooking class, and the teacher taught us new cooking skills and gave us insight into Cajun/Creole delicacies and record. You can also question them for all the foodstuff recs.
We bought a likelihood to make well known community dishes like Seafood and Okra Gumbo, Crawfish Pie, and Banana Foster Crepes. At the conclusion of the course, you get to preserve the recipes and aprons you cook in as souvenirs.
If you do not have time for a palms-on cooking course, there are demonstration classes wherever you can view the chefs prepare dinner and then eat what they make.
Pro Idea: You can view them make fresh pralines at the front of the retail store, and they hand out samples. We picked up a couple of packing containers as souvenirs for friends! You don’t will need a class for these.
Option: If you really do not have time for a cooking class, grab lunch at Peche. We particularly loved their Fried Bread and Spicy Ground Shrimp + Noodles.
