Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get a sense of the local culture at French Quarter and Garden District. The National WWII Museum and Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie). Spend the 3rd (Sun) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The adventure continues: stroll through Audubon Zoo, examine the collection at New Orleans Museum of Art, get to know the fascinating history of Royal Street, and go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour.
