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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Whitney Plantation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, test your team's savvy at Clue Carre - New Orleans' First Live Escape Game, wander the streets of Royal Street, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.
