Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Whitney Plantation. Shop till you drop at Royal Street and Boutique du Vampyre. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Evergreen Plantation in Edgard--about 52 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, examine the collection at The National WWII Museum, admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street.

Expect a daytime high around 61°F in March, and nighttime lows around 61°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
