Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Shop till you drop at Royal Street and Boutique du Vampyre. Your inner history buff will appreciate Garden District and St. Louis Cathedral. When in New Orleans, make a side trip to see Whitney Plantation in Wallace, approximately 52 minutes away. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, browse the eclectic array of goods at Frenchmen Street, and get outside with Ultimate Swamp Adventures.
