Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Head to Royal Street and Louisiana Music Factoryfor some retail therapy. French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle), Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). There's lots more to do: hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street, appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square, take a stroll through Garden District, and examine the collection at The National WWII Museum.
