Houston — 6 nights

Bayou City

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Galveston Naval Museum and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Appreciate the collections at The Menil Collection and The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Explore Houston's surroundings by going to Galveston (Galveston Historic Seaport - Home of the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA, Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum, &more), Battleship Texas State Historic Site (in La Porte) and Room Escape Games (in The Woodlands). The adventure continues: stroll through Hermann Park, wander the streets of Sawyer Yards, get engrossed in the history at Holocaust Museum Houston, and kick back and relax at Pine Gully Park.

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Houston trip planner.

Toronto, Canada to Houston is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train, car, and bus.

Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to fly to New Orleans.

New Orleans — 8 nights

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.
Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Lake Lawn Metairie will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World and USS Kidd. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Plaquemine Lock (in Plaquemine), Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie) and Baton Rouge (Mike the Tiger's Habitat & Louisiana's Old State Capitol). Spend the 27th (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Jamie Hayes Gallery, examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, get interesting insight from Ultimate Swamp Adventures, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
