Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Popular historic sites such as Garden District and Jackson Square are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Vacherie (Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site & Oak Alley Plantation). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, take a stroll through Frenchmen Street, make a trip to French Quarter, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Bourbon Street.
