Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Royal Street and Garden District will appeal to history buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Whitney Plantation. Step out of New Orleans to go to Vacherie and see St. Joseph Plantation, which is approximately 1 hour away. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, get to know the fascinating history of French Quarter, don't miss a visit to Jackson Square, and wander the streets of Magazine Street.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
