New Orleans
Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Appreciate the collections at The National WWII Museum and Gallier House. Garden District and Frenchmen Street are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to Nature & Wildlife Tours in Slidell (about 48 minutes away). There's much more to do: make a trip to French Quarter, admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, stroll the grounds of Lafayette Cemetery No.1, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Bourbon Street.
