Spend the 26th (Tue) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at The National WWII Museum, browse the eclectic array of goods at Frenchmen Street, appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, and shop like a local with Royal Street.
