Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The National WWII Museum and Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World. Royal Street and Frenchmen Street are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie), Lake End Park (in Morgan City) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). Spend the 20th (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: meet the residents at Audubon Zoo, appreciate the extensive heritage of Bourbon Street, stroll through New Orleans City Park, and see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.
