Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Your list of things to see and do now includes New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, Faulkner House Books, and other attractions. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA and Lake Lawn Metairie. Garden District and Jackson Square will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, take in the exciting artwork at Jamie Hayes Gallery, and sample the fine beverages at Old New Orleans Rum Distillery.
