Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some cultural insight at Whitney Plantation and St. Louis Cathedral. Popular historic sites such as Garden District and Jackson Square are in your itinerary. Spend the 14th (Sun) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, take in the exciting artwork at Jamie Hayes Gallery, and explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
