(Let the good times roll)

Wednesday: A day to explore on your own. Take the Hop-On/ Hop-Off tour bus, an easy orientation of what New Orleans has to offer. Includes narration of the city sights, and a self-guided tour of the Lafayette Cemetery. With the three-day ticket, you also get a walking tour of the Quarter and the Garden District. citysightseeingneworleans.com

Thursday: We’ll go to the National World War II Museum, an expansive depiction of the war that changed the world. Our time there will include lunch and a USO-style show by the Victory Belles. (Please make your reservations as soon as you can, as we have a significant required minimum to secure the show.) Transportation will be available after the show to return to the hotel if you wish. However, the museum is very large and you may wish to stay until the 5 p.m. closing. Return to hotel on your own by walking or other transportation. nationalww2museum.org

Friday: We will go via motor coach to a fabulous car collection, including arcade games and toys. Lunch is included. Friday evening: Special dinner for the board of directors and their guests.

Plan to come early; New Orleans and the surrounding areas have so much to offer.

Note: New Orleans is known for its seafood; thus, most meals will include it. Please let us know if you have a seafood allergy.
