Pre-conference History & Food Walking Tour, Sunday, October 22

For non-golfers, ICE scheduled a history and food walking tour of New Orleans. Professional guides bring local history to life while visiting five signature French Quarter restaurants offering samples. A tour highlight is the jambalaya Guy Fieri featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The event covers less than a mile and lasts approximately 3 to 3.5 hours. Casual dress and comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Space is limited for this event, register early.

The tour starts seven blocks from the hotel. An ICE Planning Committee member will guide participants to the starting location, 816 Decatur St, New Orleans. The meeting area is called ‘The Shops at the Colonnade’, which is part of the French Market complex.

Once the tour is over, you can spend additional time in the French Quarter or return to Harrah's with a Planning Committee guide. The return walk is approximately 25 minutes. Uber and taxis are available for rides to or from the tour.

This event runs concurrently with the golf event.
