Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Appreciate the collections at The National WWII Museum and Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World. Popular historic sites such as Garden District and French Quarter are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Slidell (Bogue Chitto National Wildlife Refuge & Nature & Wildlife Tours), Ponchatoula Country Market (in Ponchatoula) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, see the interesting displays at New Orleans Museum of Art, and stroll the grounds of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Lafayette Regional Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
