Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Beauvoir and St. Joseph Plantation. Get some cultural insight at Whitney Plantation and Destrehan Plantation.

Spend the 2nd (Sat) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: stroll the grounds of Lake Lawn Metairie, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Immaculate Conception Church, take in the exciting artwork at Jamie Hayes Gallery, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
