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. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Beauvoir and Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Whitney Plantation (in Wallace) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). Spend the 23rd (Fri) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, examine the collection at New Orleans Museum of Art, view the masterpieces at Jamie Hayes Gallery, and get outside with Ultimate Swamp Adventures.

For more things to do, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, read our New Orleans online travel route planner.

Expect a daytime high around °F in April, and nighttime lows around °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
