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.
Step out of New Orleans to go to Vacherie and see Oak Alley Plantation, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, stroll around New Orleans City Park, shop like a local with Royal Street, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our New Orleans day trip site .

In October, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 66°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
