New Orleans ©
Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some cultural insight at French Quarter and The National WWII Museum. Get in touch with nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Mandeville (Mandeville Trailhead Cultural Interpretive Center & Fontainebleau State Park), Houma (Southdown Plantation/The Terrebonne Museum & Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge) and Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Audubon Zoo, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Louis Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Nottoway Plantation, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square.
