New Orleans
Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Visit Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral for their historical value. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Crosby Arboretum (in Picayune). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, explore the striking landscape of Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, head outdoors with Ultimate Swamp Adventures, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our New Orleans trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Lafayette Regional Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 33°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
