For all of you who helped me with whether to stay on I-10 at Quality Inn or not, I just want to let you know that my timeshare came thru and will be staying at the Quarter House the first part of the trip and moving to Wyndham Avenue Plaza instead of staying on I-10. I'm sure nothing would have happened but do feel much safer here.
Using Groupon & Living Social I have bought tix to the HOHO bus, Jean Lafite Swamp Tours, Witches 3/1 Tour also The Lucky Lobster & Jack Dempsey's and a couple of others that are on or near the streetcar line.
Other things I'd like to do that are not included in the HOHO tour ( bought a week pass, so I could get around) is take a riverboat cruise, go to the zoo & aquarium, go see Big Al Carson, the sculpture garden/park. Using the HOHO bus, I'll see most of the usual stuff, oh yeah and going to Mardi Gras World.
If you have any suggestions or helpful hints let me know. I love good meals but can't afford the really expensive ones.
