I rented a car in order to go to the grocery store, Target, Wal-Mart, and West Marine.
While I had the car I went sight seeing to stuff outside of the city. I visited the battlefield from the War of 1812 against the British and three plantation houses. Being at the battle field was very interesting and really made the battle make sense. The plantation houses were very interesting from both an architectural and historical perspective. Each one is unique and should be visited, but I only had time to see the San Francisco and Laura houses and I saw the entrance of the Oak Alley house.
