Hi, my husband and I are going to be visiting Louisiana in October. We are Driving from Clarksdale Mississippi down to New Orleans and plan to visit some places along the way. we set off from Clarksdale on the 21st and arrive in New Orleans on the 23rd and are staying there 4 nights. We have to return our hire car to the Avis French Quarter by 4.30pm.
We wanted to know if there were any recommendations of a route and place we should stay. We wish to visit some plantation homes, before we arrive in New Orleans as we will not have a car during our stay there and wish not to take a tour. We also wish to do a bayou/swamp tour or visit Cajun country (where is this?). Was wondering if this is possible to do in before dropping off our car by 4.30 in New Orleans or if we can also to some the day before when diving into Louisiana from Mississippi?
Any help appreciated!
