Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some historical perspective at Royal Street and St. Louis Cathedral. Museum-lovers will appreciate The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle), Vacherie (Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site & Oak Alley Plantation) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Garden District, appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square, make a trip to French Quarter, and tour the pleasant surroundings at New Orleans City Park.

To see reviews, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the New Orleans trip maker tool .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Baton Rouge Metropolitan, Ryan Field. In October, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
