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 historical perspective at Royal Street and French Quarter. The National WWII Museum and Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville), Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie). Spend the 2nd (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square, take a stroll through Garden District, see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and stop by Louisiana Music Factory.
