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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to LSU Tiger Stadium and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: USS Kidd (in Baton Rouge), Whitney Plantation (in Wallace) and Biloxi (Beauvoir & Ship Island). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, partake in some friendly competition at Clue Carre - New Orleans' First Live Escape Game, and examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.

To see traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our New Orleans 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 September, daytime highs in New Orleans are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 33°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
