This Christmas Travel to New Orleans

Christmas in New Orleans is unique with the special flare of French, Creole, American and Caribbean influences. Rent an elegant timeshare at a budget price and experience Christmas in Louisiana's famed Crescent City.

The architecture in New Orleans is famous for its elaborate French and Spanish designs, and examples of the simpler Cajon cottages. You'll have fun exploring these on the many Christmas home tours available.

If you've ever wondered what the inside of the famous French Quarter residences were like, now is your chance to visit these genteel homes on the "French Quarter Holiday Home Tour." Join the friends of the Cabildo on the "Creole Christmas Home Tour" to visit historic houses dressed in Creole Christmas decorations.

New Orleans does Christmas up in sumptuous style for the younger set. Take your kids to the Royal Teddy Bear Tea at the Royal Sonesta Hotel. Don't worry - in addition to classic tea sandwiches, pizza is also served! The Teddy Bear Tea in the beautifully restored Roosevelt Hotel is held in the opulent Crescent City Ballroom, and includes hot chocolate.

The "Celebration in the Oaks" is widely considered New Orleans' premier Christmas celebration. Held in City Park, the centuries old oak trees, which thankfully survived Hurricane Katrina, are covered in thousands of twinkling lights and provide a magical canopy for an enchanted Christmas festival. Since Katrina the driving tour was eliminated, but the fabulous walking tour has been extended.

There are fun vintage rides the entire family will enjoy, including an antique wooden carousel and a miniature train that tours through the park. The walkways of Carousel Garden and Story land are lined with trees that have been decorated with handmade ornaments by local children - your kids will love choosing their favorites.

Also under the oaks, the "Cajun Night Before Christmas" exhibit includes life-size figures from the book of the same name, which participate in a rollicking animated telling of the story.

The rich history and exotic flavors of New Orleans create a Christmas experience you'll find only in this exciting city. By renting a timeshare you and your family will have time to learn New Orleans' motto first hand - "Laissez Le Bons Temps Rouler" - Let the Good Times Roll! See all New Orleans timeshares.

    We took the grandkids to the Royal Teddy Bear Tea, and I have to tell you - they do it up right for the adults who accompany the kids, too. Great time for all of us.

    We rented a timeshare (through the Hotel de la Monnaie for just $100/night. It's right next to the French Quarter - we loved visiting New Orleans, it's just like you want it to be.

    If you go to New Orleans for Christmas be sure to eat your way through the city. Our favorite was the Creole Christmas cakes.
