Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Do your shopping at Frenchmen Street and Magazine Street. Step out of the city life by going to Audubon Zoo and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Go for a jaunt from New Orleans to Vacherie to see Oak Alley Plantation about 1 hour away. Spend the 20th (Sat) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, tour the pleasant surroundings at New Orleans City Park, shop like a local with Royal Street, and don't miss a visit to Jackson Square.

In July, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 80°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
