Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Step off the beaten path and head to Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Baton Rouge (USS Kidd, Louisiana's Old State Capitol, & more), Edgard (Whitney Plantation & Evergreen Plantation) and Bay Saint Louis (Alice Moseley Folk Art and Antique Museum, Bay Saint Louis Beach, & more). Spend the 23rd (Sun) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The adventure continues: stroll the grounds of Lafayette Cemetery No.1, meet the residents at Audubon Zoo, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.
