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 Global Wildlife Center and Beauvoir. Popular historic sites such as Nottoway Plantation and Destrehan Plantation are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Covington (Smith H J & Sons General Store and Museum & Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery), Joseph T. Jones Statue (in Gulfport) and Biloxi Lighthouse (in Biloxi). Spend the 29th (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: shop like a local with Jamie Hayes Gallery, stroll the grounds of Lake Lawn Metairie, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and identify plant and animal life at Mike the Tiger Habitat.

To find other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our New Orleans online trip itinerary maker .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Lafayette Regional Airport. In May, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
