Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Garden District and Royal Street. Attractions like Jackson Square and Audubon Zoo make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Vacherie (Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site & Oak Alley Plantation) and Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, tour the pleasant surroundings at Audubon Park, and brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum.
