Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Royal Street and Frenchmen Street. Get outdoors at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Northlake Nature Center. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery (in Covington), Vacherie (Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site & Oak Alley Plantation) and San Francisco Plantation (in Garyville). The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, stroll the grounds of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral.

Plan my New Orleans trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

In May, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 70°F, while at night they dip to 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
