New Orleans Off-Season Getaway 3 Nights (JO)

Tennessee Williams first visited the “Big Easy” in 1938, calling it the “last frontier of bohemia” for its sultry art, music, and muses that inspired A Streetcar Named Desire. Today, New Orleans continues its claim to fame as the birthplace of Jazz and a city like no other in the world. This Southern legend is painted with history, culture, cuisine, and architecture from the wrought iron of the Garden District to the soul-stirring blues of Bourbon Street. Take a 3-night Monograms vacation getaway with included sightseeing, helpful Local Host®, and superior accommodations with plenty of free time to take a streetcar down St. Charles Avenue or Canal Street past the moss-covered lanes of antebellum mansions. From beignets to bananas foster and hurricanes to hot jambalaya, there is never a shortage of soothing Southern comfort food in any of New Orleans’ historic restaurants from Cajun to Creole. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Dianne

Hi, I’m Dianne and welcome to N’Awlins, city of legend. As a native New Orleanian, it would be my pleasure to introduce you to my New Orleans. Some of my recommendation for any visitor is the city's historic French Quarter, take in the neighborhood’s balconies and galleries with its dripping floral displays, a ride on the world’s oldest streetcar through the famous Garden District to view stately mansions should not be missed, and learn about the origination of Jazz, Mardi Gras traditions and a whole lot more. A visit to our beautiful city would not be complete without dining on gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish and beignets, and top off your holiday with an excursion on an authentic paddlewheel steamboat. I look forward to sharing the best place in America to “Let the Good Times Roll!”

On Your Own Suggestions

  • Drop your money in the hat and head into one of the country’s time-honored institutions to experience real New Orleans jazz at Preservation Hall.

  • Give your tastebuds a treat at Café du Monde, a New Orleans favorite. Relax at this sidewalk café in the French Market and enjoy the specialty of the house—fresh made beignets, square French-style doughnuts lavishly covered with powdered sugar.

  • Don’t miss the world-famous Mid City Bowling Lanes, the only place to find Rock ‘N’ Bowl. Locals and tourists alike go to this 18-lane center to bowl and dance until the wee hours of the morning. Given the vibrant atmosphere, it doesn’t take long for bowlers to start doing the Twist on the approach.

  • Learn a lesson in history at the National World War II Museum (National D-Day Museum). From the beaches of Normandy to the sands of Iwo Jima, the museum’s exhibits blend personal accounts, artifacts, documents, photographs, and never-before-seen film footage that tells the stories of the amphibious landings that made victory in World War II possible.

  • Visit St. Louis Cathedral, the oldest active cathedral in the U.S. and one of only 15 minor basilicas in the country. Established in 1720, it towers over Jackson Square and is an important historic and religious symbol for this predominantly Catholic city. Tours depart from the gift shop regularly.

  • Ride a New Orleans streetcar, the oldest continuously running street railway in the U.S. There are two streetcar lines in New Orleans—St. Charles and Riverfront—and rides highlight some of the city’s major sites.

  • Shop antique stores, browse art galleries, and visit unique shops and boutiques on Magazine Street.
