We are flying into NOLO Nov 8th, renting a car and driving to Baton Rouge. We have booked the Drury Inn for 3 nights departing Nov 11th. For the next 3 days we have not booked any hotels or made any arrangements, but will drop off rental car in NOLO Nov 14th and stay there until Nov 19th before flying home.
PLACES to visit: Our plans in Baton Rouge are to do day trips to visit Lafayette and surrounding areas. Will 3 days be enough time to see the area ?
From Nov 11 to 14th we have not made any plans or hotel reservations. Cannot decide if we should drive to Biloxi area or travel south of Lafayette and visit different towns before arriving in NOLO on the 14th. Any travel suggestions including sites to see would be greatly appreciated.
DINING: We always try and eat at dining places that the locals frequent instead of commercial high priced restaurants. Would love to have suggestions from locals on their favourite eateries. Does not have to be fancy, just good home cooking. Our most fond memories of trips were meeting the locals and chatting.
Also, what are the top attractions you would recommend ?
Many thanks for you advice and looking forward to any information you can supply.
