Short day drive from New Orleans

So I got a car for one day in New Orleans. I'm willing to drive 2-3 hours out of the city. I have drivin 90 east all the way to FL, nice drive.

Anyway, I guess whatever is the best drive 2-3 hours out and 2-3 hours back not on the same route.

I was looking at a map and it looks like driving across Lake Ponchatrain might be cool as part of the trip, maybe a bit boring?

Just wanna get out of the city and have lunch.

Since you drove east last time, try driving west and checking out Cajun Country (Houma/Lafayette area). You'll be able to have an authentic "Cajun" lunch too.

Frommer's has a good day trip drive of this area: frommers.com/destinations/…0020023224.html
