Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get a sense of the local culture at French Quarter and Garden District. Get in touch with nature at Lake End Park and Audubon Zoo. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Waveland (The Waveland Ground Zero Hurricane Museum & Buccaneer State Park), Baton Rouge (The 13th Gate, Blue Bayou Water Park, & more) and Madewood Plantation (in Napoleonville). Spend the 10th (Tue) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at The National WWII Museum, step off the mainland to explore Ship Island, make a trip to Jackson Square, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, read our New Orleans trip planning website .

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in July, and nighttime lows around 80°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
