Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Immaculate Conception Church. Get some historical perspective at Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site and Oak Alley Plantation. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Biloxi Beach (in Biloxi). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Faubourg Marigny, explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie, see the interesting displays at Louisiana's Old State Capitol, and steep yourself in history at Evergreen Plantation.
