Things to do and see in New Orleans

Bourbon Street and the WW II National Museum!

On Bourbon Street in the French Quarter, it's Fat Tuesday every day of the week. Don't be shy. Order a hurricane from Pat O'Briens in a go-cup (it's legal to drink on the streets in New Orleans), put on your beads and take a stroll down New Orleans' most famous party street. Here you can groove to the blues with New Orleans legendary Big Al Carson at the Funky Pirate (727 Bourbon), ride the mechanical bull at The Bourbon Cowboy (241 Bourbon) or the whale at The Beach (227 Bourbon). Take center stage at The Cat's Meow karaoke bar (701 Bourbon, or listen the traditional jazz at Fritzle's (723 Bourbon). Bourbon offers something for everyone

Spring Shoot Hotel Update!

Where should I stay in New Orleans during the Spring Shoot?

Early response to this year's Spring Shoot has exceeded our expectations. So much so, that our room block at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel has sold out. 

However! There are several charming hotels in the French Quarter that are only a short walking distance away. For your convenience, we have compiled a list of alternate hotels. 

Call now to make your room reservations.
