If we only have time for one, which should we rather do: Plantation tour or WWII Museum?

WW2 museum

Thanks.
Any nice/unique hotel recommendations (preferably not in the French quarter)?

Traveling with kids, we were quite happy with our 3-night stay at the Residence Inn Metairie. We got upgraded to a 2-bedroom suite (+ living room and kitchenette), plus free parking, and roughly equidistant to the 2 minyan locations (5-10 minutes to each) and very close to the kosher grocery/restaurant, and not far from the FQ and other city attractions.

It's certainly not unique, but it checked every box that we needed and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

If you decide on WWII museum for your one activity, search along the St Charles streetcar line and take the streetcar to/from the museum.

Eliza Jane is an SLH by Hyatt, in walking distance to the FQ but not in the FQ itself, and is in walking distance to WWII Museum too. Cat #4.

Planning to be in NOLA in two weeks. After reading thru the thread, it seems Casablanca is closed and Waffles on Maple is a questionable hechsher. So only kosher food option is Kosher by Cajun?

Correct, unless something changed since I visited in July.

Out of town, even in big cities like LA, Chicago, Toronto, etc, places close early. ק"ו a small city like New Orleans.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Is there a Plantation that anyone recommends to visit more than the others?

We went to Laura and Houmas and enjoyed both very much. We also stopped by the outside of Oak Alley to get the famous picture of the oaks outside.
