New Orleans ©
Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some historical perspective at Garden District and French Quarter. Step off the beaten path and head to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Kayaking & Canoeing. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Vacherie (St. Joseph Plantation, Oak Alley Plantation, & more), Evergreen Plantation (in Edgard) and Whitney Plantation (in Wallace). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA, steep yourself in history at Beauvoir, and admire the landmark architecture of Destrehan Plantation.
