Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Whitney Plantation and Destrehan Plantation. Step off the beaten path and head to Global Wildlife Center and Abita Brewing Company. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Smith H J & Sons General Store and Museum (in Covington) and Donner-Peltier Distillers (in Thibodaux). Spend the 12th (Tue) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: sample the fine beverages at Old New Orleans Rum Distillery, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, take a stroll through Faubourg Marigny, and see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.
