Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Garden District. Lake Lawn Metairie and Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar will appeal to history buffs. Shop till you drop at Frenchmen Street and French Market. When in New Orleans, make a side trip to see Airboat Adventures in Lafitte, approximately 38 minutes away. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, observe the fascinating underwater world at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, wander the streets of Magazine Street, and catch some live jazz at The Spotted Cat Music Club.
