We need to take Friday August 30 off and Monday is Labor day (Holiday for everyone)

    Hi all. This is my first long road trip with the group. As such, I apologize for the stupid question, but I must ask anyway. Are the reservations all set for all of us and we will pay upon arrival, or should I also call the places and reserve a room? Thanks!

      I can't go due will be in new York those days, if you take the 399 in Pensacola to Navarre that road is beautiful and on the way back to Miami. my two cents.

    ok guys I already reserve the hotel in New Orleans, I have 3 rooms, every room with two queen bed for $225.74 with taxes checking on Aug 30 and checkout on Sep 1. Plus we need to pay $14.88 per bike for a period of 24 hours. If we share rooms the total cost per person for the two night with parking should be around $87 (4 people sleeping in a room). The hotel is 15 minutes walk from main street. please check the web
