New Orleans
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 The National WWII Museum and Royal Street. Shop till you drop at Magazine Street and Faulkner House Books. 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 Whitney Plantation (in Wallace). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Garden District, appreciate the extensive heritage of Bourbon Street, admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, and examine the collection at New Orleans Museum of Art.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, go to the New Orleans day trip site .

Expect a daytime high around 59°F in January, and nighttime lows around 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
