Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Head to Royal Street and Frenchmen Streetfor some retail therapy. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Whitney Plantation (in Wallace) and Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site (in Vacherie). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Garden District, appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie.

For maps, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our New Orleans online sightseeing planner .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
