New Orleans
Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Visiting Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Old River Road Plantation Adventure will get you outdoors. Popular historic sites such as Royal Street and French Quarter are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom), Whitney Plantation (in Wallace) and Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle). The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.

For more things to do, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the New Orleans travel planner.

In October, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 66°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
