New Orleans ©
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 Whitney Plantation and Louisiana's Old State Capitol. Visit The Myrtles Plantation and Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard), St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie) and Fort Jackson (in Buras). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Immaculate Conception Church, take an in-depth tour of Capitol Park Museum, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and don't miss a visit to Beauvoir.
