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 Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, meet the residents at Audubon Zoo, don't miss a visit to Jackson Square, and examine the collection at The National WWII Museum.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, read New Orleans trip itinerary planner.

In October in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 66°F during the day and 66°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
