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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Royal Street and Jackson Square. The National WWII Museum and Mardi Gras World will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie). Spend the 5th (Thu) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, stroll through New Orleans City Park, and meet the residents at Audubon Zoo.
