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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and French Quarter. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Oaks Golf Club and Kitchen Witch. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Saint Rose de Lima Catholic Church (in Bay Saint Louis) and Lake End Park (in Morgan City). And it doesn't end there: hunt for treasures at French Market, look for gifts at Garden District Book Shop, appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, and wander the streets of Royal Street.

For traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the New Orleans trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 82°F in August, and nighttime lows around 82°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
