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: Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Garden District, get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, and see the interesting displays at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.
