Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The National WWII Museum and Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World. Garden District and French Quarter are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle), Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). There's much more to do: witness the site of a historic battle at Chalmette National Historical Park, stroll the grounds of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, and examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.

To see reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the New Orleans planner .

In July in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 80°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
