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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Old New Orleans Rum Distillery and Whitney Plantation. Popular historic sites such as Beauvoir and Lake Lawn Metairie are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Island View Casino (in Gulfport), Saint Rose de Lima Catholic Church (in Bay Saint Louis) and Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard). Spend the 29th (Sat) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Magazine Street, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Abita Brewing Company, pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception Church, and contemplate the long history of Nottoway Plantation.

For photos, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the New Orleans tour planner.

In December, daytime highs in New Orleans are 57°F, while nighttime lows are 57°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
