Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Beauvoir and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site (in Vacherie) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, head outdoors with Ultimate Swamp Adventures, shop like a local with Jamie Hayes Gallery, and capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour.

For traveler tips, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read New Orleans online trip maker .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 80°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
