I've been to the French Quarter which is the fun hopping party district that we always see in movies. There are some great restaurants tucked away and the food is great with some "must try" treats like fresh beignets or a muffaletto sandwich. But there are also plantation homes that offer tours, swamp tours, cemetery tours. There is a lot of history tucked into that little city. Have a wonderful trip and keep in mind it will be hot and humid.
