This will be our first time in New Orleans and just wondered if anyone would be able to help with a few questions.
I'm planning a trip for next April for my partners 30th as a suprise. We are flying into Memphis on 20th April, staying there for 3 nights (hotel already booked.)
I have also booked our hotel for NO for 4 nights from 25-29 (driving back to mem for our flight home on 30)
So I have 23 and 24 to get from Memphis to NO and I was looking a staying in a plantation for one night.
Do you think it would be best to just leave early and get down to the plantation on 23 for the night. Then add another night on to our NO stay?
Or take our time and stop somewhere on the way for 23rd, stay 24th in plantation and then on to NO for the 25th?
Also my other questions are regarding the Jazz fest. We aren't massive Jazz fans but we like music and I think the atmosphere will be great. So I'm planning on buying tickets for one of the days. When do tickets go on sale and how much are they?
Are they likely to sell out or would you still be able to get tickets on the day?
Sorry for the long post, but any help would be appreciated as I can't discuss it with my partner as want it to be a surprise!
