Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Visiting Audubon Zoo and Chalmette National Historical Park will get you outdoors. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Royal Street and Garden District. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Nature & Wildlife Tours in Slidell--about 48 minutes away. Spend the 25th (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, and get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square.

Expect a daytime high around 56°F in February, and nighttime lows around 56°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
