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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like LSU Tiger Stadium and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Biloxi (Beauvoir & Ship Island), USS Kidd (in Baton Rouge) and Whitney Plantation (in Wallace). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, don't miss a visit to French Quarter, brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, and put a fun spin on your tour with Clue Carre - New Orleans' First Live Escape Game.

To find other places to visit, photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the New Orleans route maker .

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 September, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 33°C, while at night they dip to 33°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
