Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Step off the beaten path and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site. Get in touch with nature at Audubon Zoo and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom) and Whitney Plantation (in Edgard). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, take a stroll through Royal Street, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
