Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Step off the beaten path and head to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Appreciate the collections at Whitney Plantation and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Garden District, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Louis Cathedral, learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, and paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour.
