If you love something, set it free, unless it is a vital organ. Sew up a romantic relationship with today's deal: for $45, you and a companion get a one-hour gondola ride (a $90 value) with NOLA Gondola, launching from New Orleans City Park.
Nola Gondola's gondolier gracefully ushers lovebirds through a tour of the park's rustic lagoons. Invite a significant other or cherished friend for an hour of keening gazes, light conversation, or gentle slap-fights. Along with the soft splash of oars on water, your doting tête à tête will be soundtracked by Italian music seeping gingerly from the gondola Bella Mae's sound system. Guests are encouraged to bring their own special bottle of wine or bathtub gin for the journey, and NOLA Gondola will equip riders with two complimentary drinking glasses, an ice bucket, and light refreshments of cheese, crackers, and chocolates.
NOLA Gondola is recommended by Sharon Keating at About.com:
- Surrounded by 800 year-old oak trees, you glide through the lagoon, amidst the swans and ducks who make their home in the park, and the sights, sounds, and fragrances of nature are peaceful buffers from the blare and noise of town. – Sharon Keating
