Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Garden District. Let the collections at The National WWII Museum and Jamie Hayes Gallery capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of French Quarter, get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, examine the collection at Whitney Plantation, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie Cemetery.

To find traveler tips, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our New Orleans itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Ecuador, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. Expect a daytime high around 33°C in September, and nighttime lows around 33°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
