Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You've now added The Spotted Cat Music Club to your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Beauvoir (in Biloxi) and Whitney Plantation (in Edgard). The adventure continues: take a stroll through French Quarter, tour the pleasant surroundings at Audubon Park, go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral.
