New Orleans is known for historic sites, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: examine the collection at The National WWII Museum, walk around New Orleans City Park, stop by Garden District, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.

Charleston

— 3 nights
Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Change things up with a short trip to The Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw (about 38 minutes away). There's much more to do: go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour, deepen your knowledge of military history at Fort Sumter National Monument, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and make a trip to Joe Riley Waterfront Park.
