1 Suck on a crawfish head

You can't say you've done New Orleans without mastering the art of eating crawfish. Order a pound of boiled crawfish at Acme Oyster then get down to business.

2 See an albino alligator

The Aquarium has a 350,000 gallon tank teeming with sharks, tarpin, sea turtles, and sawfish - and a rare albino alligator that you have to see with your own eyes.

3 Take a pilgrimage to Preservation Hall

For a truly unique experience, not much comes close to Preservation Hall. This intimate birthplace of Jazz is about one thing - the music. You can soak up the atmosphere, and make a personal request with a contribution to the hat.

4 Go antiquing on Magazine Street

Magazine Street has some great antique stores for all sorts of plantation and early New Orleans styles, as well as other European and American classics. It's a great place to spend a few leisurely hours.

5 Order a drive-through Daquiri

Yes, that's right. You can order cocktails "to go" in New Orleans. Of course, we encourage everyone to do this in moderation.

6 Spend Christmas in New Orleans

New Orleans is a great place for Christmas. The streets are lit up, actors dressed in period costume wander about, and you feel like you have the city all to yourself. Oh, and the weather is glorious.
