    Default New Orleans for a Day

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The highlight of most people's visit to New Orleans is a walking tour of the French Quarter. Be sure to see Jackson Square during the day and Bourbon Street in the evening. A few other things you ought to see and experience include the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway and a climb up onto the levees that run alongside (and contain) the Mississippi River. Standing on the levee, it is clear that the city is below sea level and is entirely dependent on the integrity of the levee system. Those should certainly fill a day.

    Default College Students

    This is right up my alley. I was a college student in New Orleans.

    Ok - I highly suggest taking the street car and exploring the Garden District. Also check out some of the walking tours they host through the French Quarter, the graveyards, etc. I took a ghost tour once and it was fantastic and only about $5 per person at the time (about 6 years ago).

    What are you going to do between Houston and New Orleans? There are two very cool plantations in Gramercy (Oak Alley and Laura), and tons of things to do in Southwest Louisiana. New Iberia is a great place as is Lafayette.
