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 Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Royal Street. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Biloxi Beach and Whitney Plantation. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Baton Rouge (USS Kidd & Louisiana's Old State Capitol). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, view the masterpieces at Jamie Hayes Gallery, wander the streets of Faubourg Marigny, and appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter.

In July, daytime highs in New Orleans are 31°C, while nighttime lows are 31°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
