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 Lake Lawn Metairie. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Beauvoir (in Biloxi), Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site (in Vacherie) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). Spend the 18th (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, examine the collection at New Orleans Museum of Art, and head outdoors with Ultimate Swamp Adventures.

To find where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the New Orleans trip planner .

In November, daytime highs in New Orleans are 62°F, while nighttime lows are 61°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
