    We had a great time.....Kevin was extremely entertaining and the recipes he taught were wonderful. A great time for all even those who don't cook!

  • 4. Acme Oyster and Seafood House
    Acme Oyster & Seafood House, Metairie, Louisiana

    My husband is not a fan of oysters on the half shell....but he went because I love them. In addition to the raw oysters, we ordered the chargrilled oysters. If we had enough time, we would have been back the next day. Prices were reasonable and the food was amazing.

  • 5. Cookin' Cajun Cooking School

    Another great cooking class, the classroom overlooks the Mississippi river so the atmosphere was as good as the food.

  • 6. Court Of Two Sisters Restaurant
    Court of Two Sisters, New Orleans, Louisiana

    We went for the jazz brunch. A little pricy at $28 per person, but the food was great and the music was good. The omelets and Eggs Benedict were fantastic. Don't miss the Glazed Sweet Potatoes!

    We stopped here one morning for beignets and cafe au lait. Best beignets we had in New Orleans.

  • 8. National World War II Museum

    Definitely allow three hours to see the entire museum (if you don't watch the movies) Very interesting especially for my husband, a history buff.

  • 9. French Market
    French Market, New Orleans, Louisiana

    The market has a number of vendors selling jewelry, bags, luggage, T-shirts and more. We found the prices to be less than the souvenir shops....plus they'll bargain!

  • 10. Arnaud's Restaurant
    Arnaud's Restaurant / French 75 Bar, New Orleans, Louisiana

    We went to the Jazz Bistro. It was very pricy but the food was excellent, the service was great and the music was superb. This was our one big splurge.

  • 11. Crescent City Brewhouse
    Crescent City Brewhouse, New Orleans, Louisiana

    Microbrewery with live music. We stopped in and had their Sampler. It was fun to try the different beers. Only disappointment was that they ran out of their special brew before we got back a couple of days later.
