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.

Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of French Quarter, make a trip to Jackson Square, go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral.
