The Big Easy

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 Jamie Hayes Gallery and New Orleans City Park. Take a break from New Orleans with a short trip to Whitney Plantation in Wallace, about 54 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, see the interesting displays at The Historic New Orleans Collection, walk around New Orleans Musical Legends Park, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.

For photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the New Orleans online journey planner.
