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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes The Historic New Orleans Collection, Tour Treme', Hermann-Grima House, and other attractions. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie--about 1 hour away. The adventure continues: learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, and make a trip to French Quarter.

For traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our New Orleans day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. In January, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
