Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get a sense of the local culture at Garden District and Immaculate Conception Church. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Whitney Plantation and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom) and Saint Francisville (The Myrtles Plantation & Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie, appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square, partake in some friendly competition at Escape My Room New Orleans, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, you can read our New Orleans trip planner.

Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.
Carnton and Downtown Franklin will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Carter House and Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to McGavock Confederate Cemetery (in Franklin), Stones River National Battlefield (in Murfreesboro) and Burgess Falls State Park (in Sparta). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Radnor Lake State Park, walk around Land Between the Lakes NRA, Golden Pond Visitor Center & Planetarium, sample the fine beverages at Casey Jones Distillery, and explore the galleries of Lotz House Museum.
