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 cultural insight at French Quarter and Garden District. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Royal Street and Nottoway Plantation. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site), Biloxi Beach (in Biloxi) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, stroll around New Orleans City Park, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.
