Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Whitney Plantation and The National WWII Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Garden District and Jackson Square. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Baton Rouge (Mike the Tiger Habitat, USS Kidd, & more), St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie) and Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle). Spend the 15th (Sun) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, have fun at Escape My Room New Orleans, examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and head outdoors with Ultimate Swamp Adventures.

In September, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 83°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
