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 Garden District and Royal Street. Do some cultural sightseeing at French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site) and Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle). The adventure continues: admire the striking features of St. Louis Cathedral, kick back and relax at Biloxi Beach, wander the streets of Magazine Street, and examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.
