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 Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Baton Rouge (Mike the Tiger Habitat & LSU Tiger Stadium) and Whitney Plantation (in Edgard). Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, take a stroll through Garden District, stroll through Audubon Park, and don't miss a visit to French Quarter.

To see more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the New Orleans travel planner.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. In December, daytime highs in New Orleans are 16°C, while nighttime lows are 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
