Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Royal Street and Frenchmen Street. Garden District and Jackson Square will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Bogue Chitto State Park (in Franklinton), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery (in Covington). Spend the 25th (Sat) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: take a stroll through French Quarter, explore the different monuments and memorials at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, tour the pleasant surroundings at New Orleans City Park, and examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.

To find ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read New Orleans holiday planning website .

Expect a daytime high around 32°C in August, and nighttime lows around 32°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
