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.
Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie--about 1 hour away. The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street, and take a stroll through French Quarter.
