Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Explore hidden gems such as Global Wildlife Center and Jamie Hayes Gallery. Do your shopping at Frenchmen Street and Boutique du Vampyre. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Whitney Plantation (in Wallace), Baton Rouge (LSU Rural Life Museum, USS Kidd, & more) and St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie). Spend the 29th (Fri) on the water with a fishing tour. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, look for all kinds of wild species at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, stroll the grounds of Lake Lawn Metairie, and see the interesting displays at New Orleans Pharmacy Museum.
