The Big Easy

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some cultural insight at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA and Lake Lawn Metairie. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Biloxi Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Beau Rivage Casino (in Biloxi) and Joseph T. Jones Statue (in Gulfport). Spend the 31st (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Old River Road Plantation Adventure, see the interesting displays at The Presbytere, get outside with Ultimate Swamp Adventures, and don't miss a visit to New Orleans Musical Legends Park.
