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.
Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens will appeal to history buffs. Get some cultural insight at Royal Street and Garden District. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom), Whitney Plantation (in Edgard) and Biloxi Beach (in Biloxi). Spend the 25th (Thu) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, take a stroll through Frenchmen Street, don't miss a visit to Jackson Square, and examine the collection at The National WWII Museum.
