Leisurely trip to Big Easy
On Thursday morning we will bus to the Memphis Amtrak Station to board the “City of New Orleans” for a leisurely day trip to the Big Easy. This scenic trip will wind through several rural Mississippi and Louisiana towns before arriving mid afternoon in New Orleans.
You will be able to take advantage of the viewing car for panoramic views.
While in New Orleans the group will be housed in the Marriott Courtyard on Iberville, in the heart of the French Quarter. Several world class restaurants, Jackson Square, museums, walking history tours, as well as Bourbon Street are located in easy walking distance from our hotel.
The group will take a city bus tour on Friday morning experiencing the history and culture of New Orleans before an afternoon and evening to tour on your own.
The group will fly on to San Antonio on Saturday, Jan. 11 to meet up with the rest of the Tennessee delegation in time for the AFBF Convention.
