Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at French Market and Royal Street. Step out of the city life by going to Ship Island and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site in Vacherie--about 58 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Magazine Street, appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, explore the different monuments and memorials at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, and see the interesting displays at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.
