Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
For shopping fun, head to Royal Street or Faulkner House Books. Visiting Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville) and Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge (in Houma). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, stroll through New Orleans City Park, and take a stroll through Garden District.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the New Orleans day trip planning app .

April in New Orleans sees daily highs of 71°F and lows of 71°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
