Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Nottoway Plantation and Lake Lawn Metairie. Jamie Hayes Gallery and Immaculate Conception Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Plaquemine Lock (in Plaquemine), St. Joseph Cathedral (in Baton Rouge) and Vacherie (St. Joseph Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). Spend the 18th (Tue) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Whitney Plantation, enjoy the sea views from Biloxi Lighthouse, steep yourself in history at Beauvoir, and sample the fine beverages at Old New Orleans Rum Distillery.
