Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Take a break from the city and head to Audubon Zoo and Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge. Head to Frenchmen Street and Magazine Streetfor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Bayou Children's Museum (in Thibodaux), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Greenwood Gator Farm and Tours (in Gibson). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Royal Street, snap pictures at Pedestrian Bridge, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and learn about winemaking at NOLA Tropical Winery.
