Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes The Jazz Playhouse, NOLA Brewing Co. and New Orleans Secrets Tours. Explore hidden gems such as Whitney Plantation and Ultimate Swamp Adventures. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Beauvoir (in Biloxi), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site (in Vacherie). Spend the 23rd (Fri) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, stop by Boutique du Vampyre, and explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.

For maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, use the New Orleans holiday planner.
