From the wrought-iron balconies and Jazz music of New Orleans, venture to a bygone era, when sugarcane plantations lined Louisiana's River Road and Cajun Country was just being settled. Then head to the Gulf of Mexico coast, where casino resorts and beach towns beckon.

New Orleans, Louisiana


Everything in New Orleans tells a story of history and heritage. Join a tour through the historic French Quarter or one tracing New Orleans' cemeteries, voodoo and ghost lore. Also a musical city, venues like Preservation Hall rotate a line-up of fabulous musicians playing traditional New Orleans Jazz. In St. Tammany Parish, swamp tours cruise Louisiana's mystic bayous, where alligator sightings are plentiful.

Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, Louisiana

In Louisiana's Cajun Country, Vermilionville and Acadian Village, recreate the lives of early settlers. Later, join a food tour to sample area specialities, such as savoury crawfish. Pop into Café des Amis, where shrimp and grits is a must-eat dish at Sunday brunch. You can dine at Prejean's, too, though live Cajun bands steal the show. Musicians and artists make the Acadian Center for the Arts a good bet, too.

Gulf Beaches, Alabama

When you desire time in the sun, retreat to Alabama's Gulf Beaches. Communities such as Gulf Shores and Orange Beach characterize the quintessential Gulf of Mexico beach holiday: soft, white sand and clear waters underneath the glorious sunshine. You'll find charter cruises for dolphin-sighting, sailing and deep-sea fishing, a popular pastime in the area. Be sure to enjoy fresh, local seafood when you visit here. Take a connecting flight from Mobile or any of the other nearby airports.
