Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Go for a jaunt from New Orleans to Vacherie to see Oak Alley Plantation about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, wander the streets of Royal Street, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to Jackson Square.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the New Orleans itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. Expect a daytime high around 16°C in December, and nighttime lows around 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
