New Orleans
— 7 nights

days
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 out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of French Quarter, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, make a trip to Jackson Square, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Frenchmen Street.

To find other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our New Orleans trip itinerary planner.

In October in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 67°F during the day and 67°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
