Hop on "Santa's bus” for a narrated tour to New Orleans’ City Park, one of the ten largest urban parks in the country, home to the largest collection of mature live oaks in the world. Trees in the oldest grove are over 800 years old!

Enjoy the view of 19th century mansions, brightly decorated for the holidays, in the city’s original Creole area as we travel Esplanade Avenue, a boundary of Faubourg Treme, the subject of the hit HBO television series “Treme”.
