Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Attractions like Jackson Square and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of New Orleans to go to Vacherie and see Oak Alley Plantation, which is approximately 1 hour away. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to French Quarter, get a taste of the local shopping with Royal Street, tour the pleasant surroundings at Audubon Park, and see the interesting displays at Mardi Gras World.

For more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, read our New Orleans tour planner.

In February, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 56°F, while at night they dip to 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
