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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie) and Jambalaya Park (in Gonzales). The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, stroll through New Orleans City Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, and see the interesting displays at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.
