You should do a little cruise on the Natchez if you spend any time in New Orleans. It does luncheon and dinner cruises, and it is a paddle boat. The French Quarter is worth visiting also, though I recommend doing that in daylight as there are some unsavory people hanging in that area.
Yes, I have to do a Mississippi (did I spell that correct?
) cruise on Natchez. It looks like a great cruise! I think thay have jazz cruises too - not the music I am listening to too often but I used to play in a jazz band when I was in school and jazz has to be a part of a visit to New Orleans.
I was actually thinking of a hotel in the French Quarter but maybe that is not the best location?
I'm looking forward to both Florida and New Orleans, but I have to wait another year. Plenty of time for planning!
