Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Royal Street and Garden District. When in New Orleans, make a side trip to see Houmas House Plantation and Gardens in Darrow, approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, stop by Faulkner House Books, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, and hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street.

To find ratings, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, use the New Orleans travel route builder site .

In May, daytime highs in New Orleans are 70°F, while nighttime lows are 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
