New Orleans

— 5 nights

The Big Easy

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Appreciate the collections at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World and Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site. Your inner history buff will appreciate Garden District and French Quarter. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Tammany Trace (in Abita Springs), Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & St. Joseph Plantation) and Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville). Spend the 12th (Sun) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, look for gifts at Dutch Alley Artists Co-Op, take a stroll through Frenchmen Street, and stroll the grounds of Lafayette Cemetery No.1.

In December, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 57°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
