A New Orleans Vacation

Vue Orleans

Vue Orleans

The summer of 2022 is looking like a perfect time for a vacation. After enduring a lot of stay-at-home time over the last two years, there's plenty to explore in one of America's favorite playgrounds – New Orleans. On this week's show, we learn about Vue Orleans – the 20 million dollar multimedia experience that opened earlier this year at the foot of Canal Street.

Then we travel to Egypt with the help of the New Orleans Museum of Art, which has rolled out the red carpet for Queen Nefartari, the royal wife of Ramses II. Chef Chris Montero of Café NOMA and Khaled Hegazzi of Pharaoh's Cave and Sittoo's Kitchen have cooked up authentic tastes of Egypt to further enrich the museum-goers experience at NOMA this summer.

We also chat with Today Show co-stars Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, before partaking in New Orleans’ ultimate liquor experience, The Sazerac House. The multimillion dollar three-story interactive museum on the corner of Canal and Magazine Street is a liquor-laden Disney World for historians and cocktail lovers alike.
