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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow), Whitney Plantation (in Wallace) and The Cajun Village (in Sorrento). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Audubon Zoo, admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, and stroll around New Orleans City Park.

For photos, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our New Orleans day trip planning website .

Expect a daytime high around 70°F in May, and nighttime lows around 70°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
