Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Garden District Book Shop, Farmer's Market, Aunt Sally's Praline Shop, and other attractions. Step out of New Orleans to go to Vacherie and see Oak Alley Plantation, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, don't miss a visit to French Quarter, see the interesting displays at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Audubon Zoo.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our New Orleans attractions site .

In May in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 70°F during the day and 70°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
