Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Whitney Plantation and Ultimate Swamp Adventures. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Beauvoir (in Biloxi), Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site (in Vacherie) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, test your team's savvy at Clue Carre - New Orleans' First Live Escape Game, look for gifts at Boutique du Vampyre, and explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
