EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Music is the heartbeat of New Orleans, and there’s no better way to enjoy the sounds of jazz, brass bands, rock ‘n roll and more than during the city’s French Quarter Festival. Then, board the world’s largest authentic steam-powered paddlewheel riverboat, American Queen, for a journey that leads you to some of Louisiana’s most beautiful plantations, historic cities and its capital city, Baton Rouge.


• Feel the rhythms of jazz during private musical performances by local musicians.
• Tap your toes to the sounds of jazz, rock ‘n roll and more as you explore the many musical venues of the French Quarter.
• Walk through the history of the beautifully preserved homes and grounds of Oak Alley, Laura and Evergreen Plantations.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one-half mile over flat terrain; getting on/off buses or vans.
