What You'll Get

Departing from the meetup point, you'll be given a brief introduction to New Orleans history.  Then head into Jackson Square, where you will learn about the main focal points of the city - St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, and the Presbytere. A short walk down Chartres Street will introduce you to the common features prominent in French and Spanish architecture. Then you will head down bustling Royal Street to seek out other architectural wonders such as the city's first sky scraper.
