Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Step off the beaten path and head to Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Biloxi Beach. Do your shopping at Royal Street and Magazine Street. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, shop like a local with Frenchmen Street, wander the streets of Garden District, and explore the world behind art at Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden.

To find maps, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our New Orleans online itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. In September, daytime highs in New Orleans are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 33°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
