The Big Easy

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Audubon Zoo and New Orleans Musical Legends Park. Kids will appreciate attractions like Walking tours and French Quarter. There's lots more to do: stroll around New Orleans City Park, pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception Church, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, and see the interesting displays at New Orleans Pharmacy Museum.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) to allow time to fly back home.

The Pelican State
With a landscape of deltas, marshes, and swamps formed by the sediments of the Mississippi River, Louisiana is home to rich native plant and animal life, including rare species of tree frogs, ibis, and egrets. The state's urban areas, most notably the historical city of New Orleans, are some of its most popular attractions and boast a varied multicultural and multilingual heritage, strongly influenced by a mix of French, Spanish, Native American, and African cultures. Native Louisianans proudly cling to their distinctive dialects and musical traditions, offering visitors a chance to explore one of the most culturally diverse areas in North America. The homeland of both Cajun and Creole cuisines, Louisiana remains a top holiday destination for foodies from around the world.
