Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and French Quarter will appeal to history buffs. Visiting Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Mike the Tiger's Habitat will get you outdoors. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Louisiana's Old State Capitol (in Baton Rouge) and Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard). There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie, admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Immaculate Conception Church.
