Bucket List item #1... trip to Louisiana!

alaskal | Oct 28, 201311:30 AM our way through Louisiana!
Seriously; I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all the great responses on this board and hope you have a few suggestions for the wife and I. First trip ever to NOLA...been waitin' 66 years!
We are flying in to Houston from Alaska on Nov 21,'13. Spend nite there, rent car and drive to Lake Charles area, spend a few clams in the Casinos there, then drive on to LaFayette in search of some good oysters, crawfish, boudin and what not for the next nite.
Morn of 23rd we plan to drive down the Hwy 190 and eventually wind up in Metarie for the remainder of our stay...(flying back from NOLA airport on Thanksgiving Day) We are just headquartering in Metarie from the 24th thru 27th...will have the car for day trips, etc from there.
We were thinking one trip to Billoxi, just to see some beaches and a little of Miss. for one day.
We want to try it all...Cajun, Creole, Seafood,seafood and seafood! We like out-of-the-way places with down-home food that will welcome our Levis and short sleeves.
We are keenly interested in all things Southern, so any must-see activities as well as must-try cuisine suggestions will be most welcome!

Thank you in advance for your guidance!!
