Christmas New Orleans Style
New Orleans, Louisiana
This month-long Creole Christmas offers something for everyone: cooking demonstrations with area chefs, caroling in Jackson Square, Cirque du Soleil's Cirque Dreams Holidaze show, holiday home tours, and Reveillon dinners (an 1800s Creole tradition) at classic New Orleans restaurants. Christmas Eve highlights include a cruise on the steamboat Natchez and a Christmas Eve Bonfire Adventure. Insider’s tip: Look for “Papa Noel” discounted room rates at area hotels throughout the month; 504/522-5730, fqfi.org/christmas or neworleansonline.com.
