Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Do some cultural sightseeing at French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Garden District and Nottoway Plantation. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: San Francisco Plantation (in Garyville), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, wander the streets of Royal Street, don't miss a visit to Bourbon Street, and see the interesting displays at New Orleans Museum of Art.

To see photos, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the New Orleans trip planning website .

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 July in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 31°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
