Staff Tips

New Orleans-Many a visitor’s love affair with New Orleans begins after a bite of these crusty hero sandwiches made from fresh French bread slathered with mayonnaise and crammed with fried Gulf oysters or shrimp.

Memphis -The King's domain is busiest in January and August, the months of Elvis's birthday and the anniversary of his death. Those eager to join hundreds of Elvis look-alikes should book accommodations up to a year in advance.
