Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Royal Street and St. Louis Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Visiting Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Old River Road Plantation Adventure will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Smith H J & Sons General Store and Museum (in Covington) and Crosby Arboretum (in Picayune). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, look for all kinds of wild species at Global Wildlife Center, and view the masterpieces at Jamie Hayes Gallery.

In November, daytime highs in New Orleans are 62°F, while nighttime lows are 61°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
