Jazz Fest in NOLA: Music Food and Drink

My wife Rosalie and I stumbled into the New Orleans Jazz Fest. We were already going to New Orleans, Louisiana -- booking flights and reserving rooms -- when our son told us, "Hey, that's during Jazz Fest.” So, a little tweak to change hotels, a purchase of tickets for Sunday, May 3, and that quickly we’re going to our first Jazz Fest.

Best Family Plantations Along Louisiana’s Great River Road

The glamorous life of old on display in New Orleans’ Garden District is far surpassed by the many riverfront antebellum mansions and plantations lining the Great River Road. Be sure to allow half a day to tour one, show the family the agricultural heart of the state, and discover how the lives of plantation owners differed from that of their slaves.

Unexpected Magical Memories

As I loaded my iPod with music in preparation for our ‘Summer Road Trip’, I knew my mother, my sister, and I were going to be spending many hours together in the van. Our starting point was Tempe, Arizona, heading for Disney World (Yes!) in Orlando, Florida via mini stops in Austin, Texas, and New Orleans, Louisiana. After celebrating my birthday in the grand style of Disney, we would be taking a “slight detour” through Wisconsin to visit with relatives, before heading back to Arizona. Evidently my mother wasn’t very good at geography.

Brilliant Baton Rouge!

      Imagine a community of people so close knit that every new comer instantly becomes family. Envision a place where a smile isn’t known as a friendly gesture, but a subconscious requirement. Turn your attention to a land filled with Cajun style afternoons and blissful jazz themed evenings.
