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 Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Garden District, get to know the fascinating history of French Quarter, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Old New Orleans Rum Distillery.

To see traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our New Orleans journey maker site .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in September, and nighttime lows around 83°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
