Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Head to Royal Street and Jamie Hayes Galleryfor some retail therapy. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Whitney Plantation and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of French Quarter, admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and admire the striking features of Destrehan Plantation.
