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.
Get in touch with nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge. Get some historical perspective at Garden District and Jackson Square. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Ship Island (in Biloxi) and Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville). There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, stroll the grounds of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, and stroll through New Orleans City Park.

For more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the New Orleans trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. In November, daytime highs in New Orleans are 19°C, while nighttime lows are 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
