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 Nottoway Plantation and Whitney Plantation. Step out of the city life by going to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Woldenberg Park. Venture out of the city with trips to St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie) and Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard). Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Old New Orleans Rum Distillery, steep yourself in history at Destrehan Plantation, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and look for gifts at Garden District Book Shop.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, go to the New Orleans day trip site .

In March, daytime highs in New Orleans are 61°F, while nighttime lows are 61°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
