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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Royal Street and Garden District. French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Ship Island (in Biloxi). Spend the 31st (Thu) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The adventure continues: shop like a local with Frenchmen Street, stop by Faulkner House Books, admire the majestic nature at Fairview-Riverside State Park, and get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square.
