Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some cultural insight at The National WWII Museum and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Discover out-of-the-way places like Lake Lawn Metairie and New Orleans Pharmacy Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Baton Rouge (Louisiana's Old State Capitol, USS Kidd, & more), Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard) and Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery (in Covington). The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Global Wildlife Center, get a taste of the local shopping with Jamie Hayes Gallery, admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Immaculate Conception Church.
