New Orleans

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Garden District and French Quarter will appeal to history buffs. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like St. Louis Cathedral and Chalmette National Historical Park. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie), Biloxi Beach (in Biloxi) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). Spend the 14th (Sun) on the water with a fishing tour. The adventure continues: learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, head outdoors with Ultimate Swamp Adventures, get to know the fascinating history of Bourbon Street, and don't miss a visit to Jackson Square.
