Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and LSU Rural Life Museum will appeal to history buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to Whitney Plantation and Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Madewood Plantation House (in Napoleonville), National Hansen's Disease Museum (in Carville) and Baton Rouge (USS Kidd Museum & Louisiana's Old State Capitol). Next up on the itinerary: take in nature's colorful creations at Houmas House Plantation and Gardens, see the interesting displays at New Orleans Museum of Art, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and admire the masterpieces at Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
