New Orleans
Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You've now added New Orleans Museum of Art to your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at The National WWII Museum and French Quarter. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Royal Street and Frenchmen Street. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, wander the streets of Magazine Street, examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Louis Cathedral.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 80°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
