Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Royal Street and French Quarter. Museum-lovers will get to explore The National WWII Museum and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Baton Rouge (Louisiana's Old State Capitol, USS Kidd, & more). Spend the 22nd (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, and examine the collection at New Orleans Museum of Art.

In May, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 70°F, while at night they dip to 70°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
