Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Whitney Plantation and Lake Lawn Metairie. Your inner history buff will appreciate The Myrtles Plantation and St. Joseph Plantation. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site (in Saint Francisville), Joseph T. Jones Statue (in Gulfport) and Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Faubourg Marigny, steep yourself in history at Hermann-Grima House, put a fun spin on your tour with Escape My Room New Orleans, and examine the collection at New Orleans Pharmacy Museum.
