Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Visit Royal Street and French Quarter for their historical value. Family-friendly places like Audubon Zoo and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium will thrill your kids. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Nature & Wildlife Tours in Slidell--about 50 minutes away. Spend the 7th (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, and hunt for treasures at Frenchmen Street.

In August in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 82°F during the day and 82°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
