Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Your list of things to see and do now includes New Orleans Ghosts, Decatur Street, The Spice & Tea Exchange of New Orleans, and other attractions. You'll explore and learn at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Head to Royal Street and Frenchmen Streetfor some retail therapy. There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, don't miss a visit to Arcadian Books, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, and look for gifts at Faulkner House Books.
