Memorial Day: Living in New Orleans, we have access to one of the best museums in the world with the WWII Museum. Starting as the D-Day Museum, it has expanded to preserve the history of the entire war. Having been to Normandy, we truly enjoy the European theater section especially the part on D-Day. However, the Pacific section is just as well done, and we learn something every time we go. While they have many events scheduled on Memorial Day itself, this would be a good weekend to take a visit.
OPA!: The New Orleans Greek Fest is this weekend, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. First, you cannot go wrong with the food. The spring lamb is one of the best festival foods you can get at any festival. If you have never tried Greek food, this is a good place to start. The Greek Dinner gives you a good sampler, and the goat burger is better than most festival burgers. There are tons of activities at the Festival, such as a 5K, canoeing, dancing, and live music. We thoroughly enjoyed the Cathedral tour, so make sure you put that on your agenda.
