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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Kayaking & Canoeing as well as Bourbon Street. Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Therapy Charters. Do some cultural sightseeing at The National WWII Museum and French Quarter. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Tuxachanie National Recreation Trail (in Saucier), Crosby Arboretum (in Picayune) and Tammany Trace (in Covington). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, stroll the grounds of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, and examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Lafayette Regional Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
