Join Us For A NOLA Plantation Country Holiday Twitter Chat #NOPCHoliday


When thinking of Louisiana travel, the French Quarter of New Orleans is the first thing many people think of. But, you don’t want your Louisiana visit to end within the city limits of New Orleans. Just a short drive outside the city you can walk through century old,  Southern plantations while absorbing the fascinating history and eating some of the best food you’ll find in the state! New Orleans Plantation Country offers all that and more. Now that it’s December you can add in the festivities of the holidays for an experience that’s not to be missed!

There are ten plantations open for tours with some even offering overnight accommodations. In addition to plantations you can take an eco-tour or air boat tour, attend festivals, spot wildlife and much more.

Join me (@ThriftyJinxy) on Thursday, December 8th from 2pm-3pm CST on twitter along with @Tatanisha, @EatMoveMake, @DebThompson, and of course, @NOLAPlantations chat on location about holiday bonfires, hayrides, celebrating the holidays in NOLA Plantation Country.
