New Orleans

days
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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and St. Joseph Plantation. Venture out of the city with trips to Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and The Oaks Golf Club (in Pass Christian). And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Audubon Zoo, admire the masterpieces at Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, and stroll the grounds of Lake Lawn Metairie Cemetery.

To see photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the New Orleans trip planner.

In December, daytime highs in New Orleans are 57°F, while nighttime lows are 57°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
