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.
You'll explore and learn at Whitney Plantation and Louisiana's Old State Capitol. Step off the beaten path and head to The Myrtles Plantation and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Step out of New Orleans to go to Baton Rouge and see Capitol Park Museum, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, view the masterpieces at Jamie Hayes Gallery, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Louis Cathedral, and learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum.

In October, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 66°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
