Explore the exciting sights and sounds of New Orleans at The 2022 NRWA Annual Conference. When you’re not gaining valuable insights or connecting with peers at the conference, find out what distinguishes New Orleans as a top tourist destination. 

The NRWA is excited to provide two opportunities for our attendees. These excursions are in addition to conference registration and do not conflict with any daytime educational sessions. Attendees are welcome to register for these excursions, or explore the city on their own in the evening.

Attendees can register for excursions at the time of their initial conference registration,
or add them on at a later time (subject to availability).

French Quarter Ghosts & Legends Walking Tour

Presented by Haunted History Tours

Bourbon Street in motion

Monday, September 19, 2022

8:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m, CT

Tour Leaves from the Royal Sonesta Hotel

$30.00 (includes tour and gratuity for guide)

On this private tour for NRWA conference attendees, visit the French Quarter’s most haunted locations!

Discover New Orleans’ dark side on this two‐hour haunted history ghost tour. Hear tales of famous hauntings from your local guide, and visit the French Quarter’s most infamous and eerie locations— hotspots for paranormal investigators and historical videographers. By the end, you see the Vieux Carré in a different (and profoundly more ominous) light.

Your expert guide will lead you on a leisurely walk around the French Quarter, the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. The tour will include a brief break in the middle where you can grab a refreshment.

New Orleans walking tours are always rooted in history and feature historically accurate storytelling. The ghost tour combines the ancient art of storytelling with historic research and documentation about ghosts and haunting in New Orleans. Unlike a theatrical fantasy tour relying on costumes and camp, it draws heavily on the drama of history. Discover interesting sites that you might otherwise pass without notice.

Creole Queen Jazz Dinner Cruise

Mardi Gras beaded necklaces

Monday, September 19, 2022
6:15 p.m. – 9:00 p.m, CT


Fee includes river cruise, jazz entertainment, creole buffet, and taxes. This cruise features a cash bar for all beverages. No beverages are included in the registration fee.

Boarding is from 6:15 p.m.-6:45 p.m. and the cruise time is from 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. The buffet is open beginning at 6:15 p.m., so you can enjoy dinner before the boat leaves the dock if you prefer.

Transportation to/from the dock is not included. It’s a 0.7 mile walk from the Royal Sonesta Hotel, approximately 15 minutes.

Step back into the glamour and romance of the riverboat era with a cruise aboard the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen! Experience the lively sounds of traditional New Orleans music while enjoying a lavish Creole Buffet in an elegantly appointed dining room. After dinner, and maybe a little dancing, enjoy a classic New Orleans cocktail and sweet Mississippi River breezes on the promenade deck as the city skyline slips by under a canopy of stars. This nighttime cruise is pure New Orleans.
