From the Sheraton you can tour the Mississippi, walk Bourbon Street, visit a plantation, shop at Riverwalk Marketplace or Canal Place, take a swamp tour, see the Aquarium of the Americas, and learn about New Orleans rich and unique history. The Mardi Gras season begins January 6, and the parade schedule starts February 4, 2012; Mardi Gras Day is February 21, 2012.

Fred Kerby, SANS Senior Instructor says,
When I'm in New Orleans, I try to have dinner at Dickie Brennan's Palace Cafe at least once during the stay. The food is excellent and the desserts are sure to make you a well rounded person...
