Add these only-in-New Orleans activities to your bachelorette itinerary to keep the good times rolling all day and night long:

Music permeates and enriches everyday life in New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz. Follow the locals to Frenchmen Street where endless venues host jazz, funk and blues bands nightly. Afterward, karaoke the night away at Cat’s Meow on Bourbon Street.
Airboat Swamp Tour:
For an adventure of a lifetime, take the krewe on a high-speed airboat through the Louisiana swamps. Local guides reveal the mysteries of the bayous, while you witness and even feed alligators and other wildlife.
Wedding planning keeps you busy. Spend some quality time with your bachelorette party with these laid-back, culture-filled activities:
Nestled in the tree-lined Garden District, Commander’s Palace offers James Beard award-winning cuisine and exceptional service. Don’t miss their festive brunch complete with a live jazz band and their famous bread pudding souffle.
Tap into the mystic arts in America’s most haunted city. Find out what your future holds at a psychic reading near Jackson Square, the heart of the French Quarter.
Take your turn with the spatula at a New Orleans cooking class, where your party can learn from a local chef how to make signature Cajun and Creole dishes like jambalaya, BBQ shrimp and more.
