Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get outdoors at Audubon Zoo and Fairview-Riverside State Park. Get some cultural insight at French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge (in Houma). Spend the 15th (Thu) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, stroll through New Orleans City Park, and examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.
