Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Garden District and Oak Alley Plantation. Your inner history buff will appreciate French Quarter and Destrehan Plantation. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Houma (Terrebonne Parish & Southdown Plantation & Museum), Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company (in Kiln) and Abita Brewing Company (in Abita Springs). The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, view the masterpieces at Tami Curtis Gallery, steep yourself in history at Evergreen Plantation, and see the interesting displays at International Petroleum Museum & Exposition.
