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 discover tucked-away gems like Escape My Room New Orleans and Kayaking & Canoeing. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard) and Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom). The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Augustine Church, identify plant and animal life at Gulf Islands National Seashore, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.
