Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Attractions like The National WWII Museum and Jackson Square make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie (about 1h 5 min away). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.

To see more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read our New Orleans online visit planner.

Expect a daytime high around 70°F in May, and nighttime lows around 70°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
