Travel Tour: Boo! Halloween in New Orleans

You’ll see houses like this on the architectural bus tour during our New Orleans travel tour over Halloween–along with hearing amazing music and eating fab food.

New Orleans is a great city all of the time but Halloween is especially fun. Not as crazy as Mardi Gras and not as overwhelming. Costumes are not required but call Larry for suggestions of accoutrements that can be purchased in NOLA. And there is much more to this trip than just Halloween – Preservation Hall, seeing private homes, architectural tour, great food, and much more. Spots are still available.
