Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some cultural insight at French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral. Visit Garden District and Chalmette National Historical Park for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: The Cajun Village (in Sorrento), 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: learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, see the interesting displays at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, contemplate the long history of Old Ursuline Convent Museum, and get to know the resident critters at Audubon Zoo.
