Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie--about 1 hour away. Spend the 1st (Tue) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, take a stroll through Garden District, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, go to the New Orleans driving holiday planning website .

In December, daytime highs in New Orleans are 57°F, while nighttime lows are 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
