New Orleans

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Vacherie (Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site & Oak Alley Plantation). Spend the 2nd (Thu) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through French Quarter, appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and stroll through Audubon Zoo.
