You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: St. Joseph Plantation (in Vacherie) and Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at Our Sacred Stories, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Immaculate Conception Church, see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and witness the site of a historic battle at Chalmette National Historical Park.
