The wife and I will be visiting NOLA for our second time next week. We will be staying for 6 nights (NYE included) and are looking for some ideas for a different experience of New Orleans. We are thinking about renting a car so that maybe we can drive outside New Orleans. We are staying in Downtown so anything nearby there is nice too. Ideas included are:
1) Lacombe- I hear John Besh has place there that may be worth a stop? Maybe a stop at the Bayou Sauvage Refuge on the way?
2) A bayou tour? We know nothing of what where and when but are very intrigued by the ideas of visiting the Bayous.
3) NYE is something that we dont usually love as most restaurants and bars are overpriced and overcrowded so a suggestion for a better to-do is much welcomed.
Any other ideas for anything outside the quarter is much appreciated!!!!
