Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Popular historic sites such as Garden District and Lake Lawn Metairie are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Kayaking & Canoeing and Fishing Charters & Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Baton Rouge (USS Kidd & Louisiana's Old State Capitol) and St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, contemplate the long history of The Myrtles Plantation, partake in some friendly competition at Escape My Room New Orleans, and look for all kinds of wild species at Global Wildlife Center.

To see more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the New Orleans travel route planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Lafayette Regional Airport. In May, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
