GBBG Springtime Travel Opportunity - Aug 17, 2010
Rosedown Plantation, St. Francisville, Louisiana
by Pat Fasanella, Odyssey Tours
What could be lovelier than springtime in the deep south? Acres of blazing azaleas, massive live oak trees dripping with Spanish Moss, mint juleps on the terrace of an antebellum mansion – we’ll soon be enjoying all these and more, on Green Bay Botanical Garden’s upcoming Great River Road Gardens & Plantations Tour.
We invite YOU to come along with us March 22-29, 2011 as we fly south to admire glorious gardens and tour historic plantations along the Mississippi River from New Orleans to Natchez. We’ll experience elegant estate gardens, marvel at the world’s largest stand of live oaks, sample the very best of local cuisine, visit a town with more antebellum homes than anywhere else in the country, and even learn a bit about Cajun culture.
Seats on the tour are first-come, first-served, so be sure to sign up soon to avoid disappointment. To contact our tour director, Pat Fasanella, Odyssey Tours, at (920) 217-5181 or firstname.lastname@example.org
