Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Explore hidden gems such as Whitney Plantation and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Beauvoir (in Biloxi), Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site (in Vacherie) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). Spend the 1st (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, head outdoors with Ultimate Swamp Adventures, examine the collection at The Presbytere, and get a taste of the local shopping with Jamie Hayes Gallery.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our New Orleans vacation maker tool .

In December, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 57°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
