Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Garden District and French Quarter. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Whitney Plantation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle), Global Wildlife Center (in Folsom) and Smith H J & Sons General Store and Museum (in Covington). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie, examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.

Before you visit New Orleans, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Expect a daytime high around 61°F in March, and nighttime lows around 61°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
