Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Head to Magazine Street and French Marketfor plenty of shopping. Visit Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Royal Street for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: The Oaks Golf Club (in Pass Christian), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Windance Country Club (in Gulfport). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Faubourg Marigny, do a tasting at Pontchartrain Vineyards, make a trip to French Quarter, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
