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.

Venture out of the city with trips to Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom) and Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle). There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Audubon Zoo, examine the collection at New Orleans Museum of Art, pause for some serene contemplation at Old St. Patrick's Church, and immerse yourself in nature at Fairview-Riverside State Park.
