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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Royal Street and St. Louis Cathedral. Escape the urban bustle at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Fairview-Riverside State Park. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery (in Covington) and Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge (in Houma). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Audubon Zoo, see the interesting displays at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Frenchmen Street.

To see more things to do, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the New Orleans route maker website .

In March, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 61°F, while at night they dip to 61°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
