Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Whitney Plantation and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA and New Orleans Pharmacy Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Baton Rouge (USS Kidd, Louisiana's Old State Capitol, & more), St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie) and Walter Anderson Museum of Art (in Ocean Springs). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception Church, don't miss a visit to The Myrtles Plantation, observe the fascinating underwater world at The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, and view the masterpieces at Jamie Hayes Gallery.
