Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium will appeal to museum buffs. Get some historical perspective at French Quarter and Royal Street. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, explore the different monuments and memorials at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour, and examine the collection at Cabildo.

To see where to stay, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, read New Orleans tour planner.

In October in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 67°F during the day and 67°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
