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've added Erin Rose, Le Bon Temps, Spectral City Tours, and other attractions to your itinerary. Shop till you drop at Jamie Hayes Gallery and Boutique du Vampyre. You'll explore and learn at The Historic New Orleans Collection and Whitney Plantation. Change things up with a short trip to Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site in Vacherie (about 1h 5 min away). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Lake Lawn Metairie, examine the collection at New Orleans Pharmacy Museum, get engrossed in the history at The Presbytere, and pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception Church.
