Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
New Orleans is known for historic sites, museums, nightlife, shopping, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get to know the fascinating history of French Quarter, see the interesting displays at New Orleans Museum of Art, tour the pleasant surroundings at New Orleans City Park, and meet the residents at Audubon Zoo.

Houston to New Orleans is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. When traveling from Houston in July, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in New Orleans: temperatures range from 91°F by day to 76°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
