Hey, I'm looking for recommendations for thing to go see/do in the New Orleans area. I will be driving from NOVA to NO and meeting up with a friend who will be flying in from Omaha and we will probably spend about a week in the NO area. We are also thinking of branching to other areas of LA and maybe TX but am not sure of what there is. When I look at tourism sites there is so much listed but nothing to really help determine what would be worth going to see and what would be a complete waste of time. We both love history (historical sites), nature, animals and outdoors stuff (hiking and camping). I am really into photography as well so places that are good for photos would be great as well. Any ideas anyone could provide would be great, thanks in advance!
