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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. Museum-lovers will get to explore The National WWII Museum and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Whitney Plantation (in Edgard) and Biloxi Beach (in Biloxi). Spend the 7th (Thu) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through French Quarter, relax in the rural setting at St. Joseph Plantation, hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street, and make a trip to Jackson Square.
