Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Visiting Lake End Park and Ship Island will get you outdoors. Visit Garden District and Royal Street for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: LSU Tiger Stadium (in Baton Rouge), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Vacherie (Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site & Oak Alley Plantation). Spend the 15th (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: meet the residents at Audubon Zoo, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, explore the different monuments and memorials at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, and wander the streets of Frenchmen Street.
