Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get some cultural insight at French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Whitney Plantation (in Edgard) and Vacherie (St. Joseph Plantation & Oak Alley Plantation). Spend the 22nd (Fri) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, see the interesting displays at USS Kidd Museum, take a stroll through Garden District, and get outside with Ultimate Swamp Adventures.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 33°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
