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 discover tucked-away gems like Whitney Plantation and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Royal Street will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from New Orleans with a short trip to Fishing Charters & Tours in Barataria, about 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at French Market, don't miss a visit to Magazine Street, look for gifts at Faulkner House Books, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
