Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, don't miss a visit to French Quarter, and wander the streets of Royal Street.

To see reviews, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the New Orleans road trip website .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
