NOLA next week, 5 q's!

Jump to last reply

So excited to be headed to NOLA for our first time, next Sat.! We'll have a whole week so hope to enjoy at our usual slow pace.

So far only completely set in stone plans are Sun. brunch at Commander's Palace and cooking class with NOCE and Frank Brigsten on Thurs. night.

Planning to do many of the things I've seen reported as enjoyed multiple times: Preservation Hall; Frenchmen St.; cemetery tour; a drink at the Carousel Bar; walking the Royal St. shops; City Park; walking around FQ,/Jackson Sq./St. Louis Cathedral/Café du Monde; Garden District; Fauborg Marigny neighborhood; a plantation tour. DH not into swamp tour tho' maybe I'll convince him; other way around for ghost tour.

My current five q's:
1) Is Charles St. trolley back up and running its usual route?
2) For plantation tour, would you rent a car for the day, or just sign up for one of the organized tours that picks up at FQ (where our hotel is)? We won't have a car, other than this.
3) In case there are times we just feel a need for a break from what sounds like amazing local cuisine, and want something either lighter or other type of ethnic, any recs? (I think I'm pretty good on the more classic NOLA kind of recs, from reading here and chowhound)
4) We enjoy touring campuses even tho' we're in our fifties and no kids, lol! If it feels time allows might try to do that, would you recommend Tulane, Xavier, other?
5) Any NOLA experience you love/d that's not in our plans?

Thanks in advance, all!
