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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Whitney Plantation and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Your inner history buff will appreciate Garden District and French Quarter. Venture out of the city with trips to Baton Rouge (Mike the Tiger Habitat & LSU Tiger Stadium), Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at The National WWII Museum, admire the striking features of Destrehan Plantation, explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie, and sample the fine beverages at Old New Orleans Rum Distillery.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the New Orleans trip itinerary builder app .

In October in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 66°F during the day and 66°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
