Not that you need another excuse to visit the country's biggest year-round party, but a game in the Super Dome can be pretty fun, too, with Drew Brees leading the Saints' high-octane offense. Make sure you get outside some, though, and if you can tear yourself away from Bourbon Street, there are some fun golf courses in the area as well, starting with TPC Louisiana
, one of Golf Digest's 100 Greatest Public Courses
), which was designed by Pete Dye and hosts the PGA Tour's Zurich Classic. New Orleans resident and former NFL star quarterback Archie Manning
also suggests checking out Lakewood Golf Club
and Stonebridge Golf Club
, which has three courses.
