Branching out from New Orleans

Not certain how to frame the question so I'll just dive in.

We've been invited by another couple to participate in their trip to NOLA. It will be our eighth trip and their third.

They had already booked the time (arrive mid-day on Thursday 13 May and depart Monday 17 May). We're in!

They have a rental car into Saturday and are scheming to spend at least the first night and the first whole day (Friday) exploring the area by car. We've all "done" the Quarter to death and want to spread our wings.

We are considering:
- Overnight in Baton Rouge with Friday being a driving tour down towards Larose and Cutoff to see that area
- Perhaps a side trip to Biloxi

We are not afraid of the driving times but want to be back in New Orleans for Saturday/Sunday at the least.

If there are any must-see's, in this parameter, both chowish and otherwise, please provide us with your input.

Thanks in advance,
