will most of the shops and restaurants be open Dec 26?
Hi yes EVERYTHING IS OPEN ON DECEMBER 26th, Even in Christmas Day you will be able to find open restaurants and shops. If you like gaming, HARRAHS CASINO is open 365 days, 24 hours and serve food and any beverage (even alcoholic beverages) 24 hours a day:))
I don't know. Maybe try emailing the New Orleans Tourism Bureau.
