Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Jackson Square and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Change things up with a short trip to Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie (about 1h 05 min away). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The National WWII Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Audubon Zoo, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, and get to know the fascinating history of Royal Street.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the New Orleans online itinerary planner.

In October, plan for daily highs up to 66°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
