New Orleans

Is The Big Easy back on its feet post-Katrina? Samantha's there to find out. Of course, a weekend in New Orleans wouldn't be complete without music so there's a live jazz concert in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood plus dancing at locals' favorite Rock 'n'Bowl - a bowling alley which doubles as a live music venue. Samantha also gets up close and personal with a gator during a backwater bayou trip and even helps out on a non-profit project that aims to build new houses for musicians who were made homeless by the hurricane.
