New Orleans AREA
Thinking of the New Orleans AREA late March/early April. I emphasize area because we might, and that's a pretty big might, take some time to see the French Market or whatever it's called. As much as I love the Blues I must refrain from the smokey clubs/bars. (Wife is severe Asthmatic and I'm not too far from that). Neither of us are big on Cajun/spicy food and my stint in Southeast Asia left a large distain for rice. So now that the ground rules are set. What's there to do? Would like to see Grand Isle SP, St Bernard SP, Fountainebleau SP, Fairview Riverside SP, and maybe even Tickfaw SP. Must buy some fresh seafood to grill and love to cook other things in our dutch oven.
Our plan to date, with no reservations, is to leave St Louis going through Clarksdale, MS for a lunch and some Blues and a night at or near Lake Chicot State Park, AR. Then on our way through Vicksburg to Natchez SP, taking in as much as we can along the way. Baton Rouge ought to have something beside LSU Football. Slidell Elks Lodge is a must. Then work our way north to complete our two week tour. Don't know if we should see the SPs north of Lake Pontchartrain then slide south to Grand Isle and the southern parks and then scoot east under NO and then north. Or if Grand Isle is even worth seeing.
Guess your question is is Cajun/spicy food is out, Why New Orleans? Warmth! Camping bug has hit very hard this year.
Oh seasoned travelers, give me some guidance!
Camping in a SportsMobile! How much better can it get?
