Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Explore hidden gems such as Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Museum-lovers will appreciate The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Whitney Plantation (in Edgard) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). Spend the 22nd (Tue) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The adventure continues: make a trip to French Quarter, appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square, stroll the grounds of Lafayette Cemetery No.1, and get outside with Ultimate Swamp Adventures.
