I've been to New Orleans several times over the last 10 years and will be spending Thanksgiving weekend there with a friend and our teen daughters. I've seen that Thursday is opening day at the race track and thought that would be a fun place to spend some time. For those of you who have been before, what should we expect? I will have a car, but prefer not to drive there if possible, what would be the best way to get there and back from the quarter?
We'll be going to rocknbowl that night as well. Also a first for us. Already have a lane reserved for that. We're not really worried about a "traditional" turkey day meal, will probably just grab something quick, not going to fight reservations or over priced meals that day, though we do have lunch reservations at Commanders Palace Friday for my daughter's birthday.
