Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Step out of the city life by going to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Kayaking & Canoeing. Get a sense of the local culture at The National WWII Museum and Garden District. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie), Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard) and Whitney Plantation (in Wallace). There's lots more to do: put a fun spin on your tour with Escape My Room New Orleans, pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Augustine Church, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
