Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Attractions like Jackson Square and Audubon Aquarium of the Americas make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Vacherie (Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site & Oak Alley Plantation), San Francisco Plantation (in Garyville) and Baton Rouge (LSU Tiger Stadium & Pete Maravich Assembly Center). Spend the 21st (Fri) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Garden District, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, tour the pleasant surroundings at Audubon Zoo, and examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.

To find reviews, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our New Orleans trip planning app .

If you are flying in from Guatemala, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. In December, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
