Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Evergreen Plantation and Beauvoir. Escape the urban bustle at Kayaking & Canoeing and Ultimate Swamp Adventures. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie), Whitney Plantation (in Wallace) and Baton Rouge (USS Kidd, LSU Rural Life Museum, & more). Spend the 23rd (Thu) on the water with a fishing tour. There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie, pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception Church, explore the striking landscape of Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, and see the interesting displays at New Orleans Pharmacy Museum.

For photos, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, read our New Orleans trip itinerary builder website .

Expect a daytime high around 70°F in May, and nighttime lows around 70°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
