You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Tammany Trace (in Abita Springs) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation, Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site, &more). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, browse the eclectic array of goods at French Market, examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, and stop by Frenchmen Street.
