There’s lots to do and see in Louisiana in the weeks before Christmas. We get visitors all the time who use New Orleans as a base and then they make day trips to other parts of the state. Within two hours drive, there are wonderful festivals and events that you may want to include in a mini vacation to our state.

We have learned that preparations are already underway for the 27th Annual French Quarter Festival scheduled for April 9, 10 & 11, 2010! As the largest free music festival in the South, the festival showcases the finest music, food and culture that are uniquely New Orleans.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner…for many that means good times with family, fun, and FOOD! Food that you have to prepare for everyone else. If you (or your significant other) dread slaving away in the kitchen for hours on end, it may be time to switch things up this holiday!

It’s November, turkey time for most, but in the Crescent City it’s the beginning of Bowl season. Time for first downs and fun! Hail Mary’s and a hail of creole dinners in our world class eateries. Consider joining us in New Orleans for these great sporting events and making a long weekend of it- what’s better than football and the flavor of New Orleans?
Is it myth? Or is it real? Visitors who have never been cannot imagine what this city has to offer until they arrive. When the sun goes down, New Orleans comes alive with a magical energy all its own.

Just a five-minute ride on the streetcar, the World War II Museum is an easily accessible landmark from the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast. For the past few years, anyone visiting the facility returned with a sense of pride, high emotion and respect for what happened during the era that was WW II.
