Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Whitney Plantation and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium will appeal to museum buffs. Shop till you drop at Royal Street and Frenchmen Street. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom), St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie) and Tuxachanie National Recreation Trail (in Saucier). Spend the 21st (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Garden District, don't miss a visit to Beauvoir, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, and see the interesting displays at New Orleans Museum of Art.
