Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Whitney Plantation and French Quarter. Step off the beaten path and head to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Global Wildlife Center. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Smith H J & Sons General Store and Museum (in Covington) and St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street, get a taste of the local shopping with Royal Street, and don't miss a visit to Jackson Square.
