Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Whitney Plantation and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Do some cultural sightseeing at The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Biloxi (Beauvoir & Ship Island). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, test your team's savvy at Escape My Room New Orleans, get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, and wander the streets of Royal Street.

For other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the New Orleans road trip planning app .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 80°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
