Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Whitney Plantation and St. Louis Cathedral. Get some historical perspective at Garden District and French Quarter. Venture out of the city with trips to Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie), Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom) and Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle). Spend the 24th (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at The National WWII Museum, explore the world behind art at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, head outdoors with Ultimate Swamp Adventures, and wander the streets of Royal Street.
