Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
St. Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: San Francisco Plantation (in Garyville), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Garden District, explore the different monuments and memorials at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, tour the pleasant surroundings at New Orleans City Park, and get to know the fascinating history of Royal Street.

For more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our New Orleans trip itinerary maker site .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 80°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
