The Big Easy

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Clue Carre - New Orleans' First Live Escape Game and New Orleans Musical Legends Park. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Whitney Plantation (in Wallace). Next up on the itinerary: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, sample the fine beverages at Old New Orleans Rum Distillery, admire the striking features of Destrehan Plantation, and explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
