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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The National WWII Museum and New Orleans Museum of Art. Royal Street and Jackson Square will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through French Quarter, look for gifts at Louisiana Music Factory, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, and see the interesting displays at Mardi Gras World.

To find photos, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read our New Orleans trip itinerary builder.

Expect a daytime high around 82°F in July, and nighttime lows around 80°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
