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: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Whitney Plantation (in Wallace). Spend the 8th (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, see the interesting displays at The National WWII Museum, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral.

To see reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the New Orleans trip itinerary planning website .

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. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in March, and nighttime lows around 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
