Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You'll explore and learn at Whitney Plantation and The National WWII Museum. Get in touch with nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Ultimate Swamp Adventures. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Baton Rouge (Mike the Tiger Habitat & Louisiana's Old State Capitol), Saint Francisville (The Myrtles Plantation & Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site) and Covington (Smith H J & Sons General Store and Museum & Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Escape My Room New Orleans, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.

In October, daily temperatures in New Orleans can reach 66°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
