Well, I know one guy...
My wife, son, and I are making a spring break trip down south. We are flying in on Sunday and out on Thursday.
I've never been in that part of the country before. What are some of the sights to see? People to visit? Museums?
Anything you'd like me to bring, John?

National World War Two museum in New Orleans.
You could always make it an educational trip and visit Storyville in New Orleans
Cabildo, trolley ride down St. Charles Ave.,Jackson Square, Zoo, Cafe Dumont a must, Aqarium, Swamp tour, Central market for muffelata, MardiGras world. Places to eat Cochon's and Commanders Palace a bit pricy but worth the experience. With this and other suggestions should keep you busy.
Carriage ride thru French Quarter
Walk thru French Quarter and enjoy the architecture
Don't remember the FQ street but lots of antique shops
Check TripAdvisor for dining and things to do
St. Peter's street
As a regular visitor to the city, my wife is from there, i suggest start by getting a throw away wallet. Keep your real one in the front pocket and one in the back with a few bucks in it to be stolen.
If you go to the French Quarter, which I suggest you do, prepare yourself for the smell of urine and beer and go hungry the best food on the planet is to be found there.Also I suggest you go in daylight if you have kids. At night it is a totally different city.
Got to go see Big Al Carson at the Funky Pirate. Shows usually start at 9. Go late in the week, he's better when he has young gals in the audience to play to! Biggest breakfasts are at Daisy Duke's. Great hangover recovery.
Have a fried Oyster sammich at Felix's. Lots of other Oyster places, too.
James nailed it. We gave up on New Orleans long ago. The Quarter is filthy and no place for kids. Last time we went was to visit the WWII museum. In the middle of the afternoon a club barker was making lewd comments about passers by including a girl of about 14.
