  • Day 1

    Welcome to New Orleans! Rest well in your centrally located hotel located at the foot of Canal Street with the Riverwalk and French Quarter only steps away. This city is all about the food. Start it off right with dinner at the famous Court of Two Sisters! Sheraton Hotel – 4 nights (D)

  • Day 2

    Start the day with beignets and Café au lait at famed Café du Monde. The National WWII Museum has grown into a massive, worldclass facility covering four square blocks. To fuel you through your visit, take a midday break in BB’s Stage Door Canteen for lunch with The Vic-Tones, a dynamic male vocal trio who don’t just sing, but celebrate the music of the 1940s – swing, big band, Latin and you know there will be jazz! You’ll also visit the museum’s unique 4D theatre for its acclaimed production, Beyond All Boundaries. (CB,L)

  • Day 3

    Take a walking tour of the famous French Quarter, ending with free time on Jackson Square. In the afternoon, explore the city past the Quarter with a drive through downtown, the Garden District and beyond. Tonight, learn the secrets of classic Creole cuisine with a dinner class at the New Orleans School of Cooking. (FB,D)

  • Day 4

    Take an excursion to Houma, located deep in the bayous of Cajun Country. Visit Motavitit Seafood, the largest oyster processor in the United States, and historic Ardoyne, a rare Gothic Victorian plantation, where you’re greeted by descendants of the original owners. Lunch is served at Greenwood Gator Farm, where you’ll tour its breeding operation, and then see gators in the wild on a guided swamp tour before heading back to New Orleans. Have you worked up a thirst? A stroll down Bourbon Street to Pat O’Brien’s – home of the Hurricane – should cure that! (FB,L)

  • Day 5

    Breakfast at Brennan’s is a true New Orleans tradition. Where else will you get a dessert of flaming Bananas Foster following the morning meal? Return to your home state in the early afternoon. (FB)

A Coos Bay Christmas

First offered as a holiday excursion in 2013, it has been often requested by our Christmas crowd ever since, so we are pleased to bring A Coos Bay Christmas back for a return engagement.

This is an all-coach trip. Travel north to Ashland/Medford the first day. There’s a lunch break in Redding and tonight you’ll partake in the annual Christmas Feast at the Winchester Inn. The six-course meal comes with carolers and costumed staff.

The next morning (Christmas Eve), before departing for the coast, make an early morning visit to Harry & David’s. As is our Christmas shopping tradition, we have negotiated a little gift card to get you started on your expedition. Travel to the coast, stopping in Bandon at Washed Ashore, a most unique place that makes art out of ocean trash. At Cranberry Sweets, your sponsored-shopping activities continue. Finish the day at The Mill Casino/Hotel in Coos Bay. Dinner tonight is a Crab Fest (other options available), as the Dungeness season will have just started.

Christmas Day brings our legendary White Elephant Gift Exchange, an ecological tour of the area and a visit to Shore Acres State Park. Not only is there an interesting story, there is a wonderful display of Christmas lights. A holiday feast is planned.

The trip home takes you down the Oregon Coast, with shopping stops at Misty Meadows Jams and the House of Myrtlewood. Spend the night in Eureka and head home through the redwoods.
