Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Whitney Plantation and New Orleans Museum of Art will appeal to museum buffs. Get outdoors at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Kayaking & Canoeing. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle), Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Beauvoir, admire the striking features of Destrehan Plantation, see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
