Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Step out of the city life by going to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Ultimate Swamp Adventures. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Whitney Plantation and The National WWII Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Baton Rouge (St. Joseph Cathedral, Louisiana's Old State Capitol, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, wander the streets of Garden District, and get a taste of the local shopping with Royal Street.

To see photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our New Orleans trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 70°F in May, and nighttime lows around 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
