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 Tastebud Tours Food Tours, French Quarter Phantoms, St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, and other attractions. Change things up with a short trip to Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie (about 1h 05 min away). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, don't miss a visit to Bourbon Street, meet the residents at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and see the interesting displays at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.

For where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our New Orleans trip builder tool .

In January, plan for daily highs up to 59°F, and evening lows to 51°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
