The Big Easy

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get a sense of the local culture at The National WWII Museum and Garden District. Visiting Happiness Bayou Tours and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Royal Street, stop by Frenchmen Street, stop by Louisiana Music Factory, and shop like a local with Magazine Street.
