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. Popular historic sites such as Garden District and French Quarter are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Louis Cathedral, examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, explore the striking landscape of Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, and stroll the grounds of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1.
