Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Explore hidden gems such as Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Jamie Hayes Gallery. Get outdoors at St. Joseph Plantation and Ultimate Swamp Adventures. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Whitney Plantation in Wallace--about 52 minutes away. There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, stop by Boutique du Vampyre, hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street, and learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum.

To see photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our New Orleans day trip website .

In February, plan for daily highs up to 56°F, and evening lows to 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
