Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get outdoors at Audubon Zoo and Chalmette National Historical Park. Museum-lovers will appreciate The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Nature & Wildlife Tours in Slidell--about 48 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Garden District, shop like a local with Royal Street, admire the striking features of St. Louis Cathedral, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Frenchmen Street.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, you can read our New Orleans online vacation planner .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 70°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
