Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Visit Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Royal Street for their historical value. Step off the beaten path and head to Whitney Plantation and Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). Spend the 12th (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square, view the masterpieces at Jamie Hayes Gallery, and stroll the grounds of Lake Lawn Metairie Cemetery.
