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 find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site), Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). Spend the 26th (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Garden District, meet the residents at Audubon Zoo, shop like a local with Royal Street, and learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum.

To find ratings, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the New Orleans day trip tool .

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Lafayette Regional Airport. In June, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 33°C, while at night they dip to 33°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
