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.
Step out of the city life by going to Fishing Charters & Tours and Ultimate Swamp Adventures. Explore hidden gems such as Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Immaculate Conception Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Saint Francisville (Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site & The Myrtles Plantation) and Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard). There's lots more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie, stop by Faubourg Marigny, see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and stroll around Audubon Park.

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in July, and nighttime lows around 80°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
