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 out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site) and San Francisco Plantation (in Garyville). Spend the 11th (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, tour the pleasant surroundings at New Orleans City Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Louis Cathedral, and meet the residents at Audubon Zoo.

Expect a daytime high around 61°F in March, and nighttime lows around 61°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
