days
New Orleans

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Nature & Wildlife Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Baton Rouge (Mike the Tiger Habitat, LSU Tiger Stadium, & more), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Whitney Plantation (in Edgard). Spend the 13th (Tue) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The National WWII Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, and don't miss a visit to French Quarter.
