Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Step off the beaten path and head to Whitney Plantation and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Visit Garden District and St. Louis Cathedral for their historical value. When in New Orleans, make a side trip to see Beauvoir in Biloxi, approximately 1h 55 min away. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The National WWII Museum, take a stroll through French Quarter, contemplate the long history of Gallier House, and stroll the grounds of Lake Lawn Metairie.

July in New Orleans sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 80°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
