Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Ultimate Swamp Adventures. Your inner history buff will appreciate Royal Street and Garden District.

Spend the 2nd (Fri) on the water with a fishing tour. Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Jackson Square, witness the site of a historic battle at Chalmette National Historical Park, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Audubon Zoo.
