Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Garden District and French Quarter. You'll explore and learn at The National WWII Museum and Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Nature & Wildlife Tours in Slidell--about 48 minutes away. Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Audubon Zoo, appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square, explore the different monuments and memorials at Lafayette Cemetery No.1, and take a stroll through Royal Street.

In October, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
