Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Take a break from the city and head to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge. Shop till you drop at Royal Street and Faulkner House Books. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville), Mandeville Trailhead Cultural Interpretive Center (in Mandeville) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Audubon Zoo, wander the streets of Garden District, examine the collection at Mardi Gras World, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square.
