Hi! I'm from a little town about 45 minutes from New Orleans. I know lots of people come to the Big Easy to vacation, but we would like to get away from it. DS is 9 and DD is going to be 3 next month... soooooo... we would like to take a trip that would take us no more than approximately 5 hrs. to get to and would like to keep our budget around $1,000-$1500. Wish we could afford Disney this year, but we'll have to settle for whatever you guys suggest. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!
