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 discover tucked-away gems like Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and St. Joseph Plantation. Visiting Ship Island and Kayaking & Canoeing will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation & Laura Plantation), Madewood Plantation House (in Napoleonville) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, take a stroll through Garden District, identify plant and animal life at Global Wildlife Center, and make a trip to Jackson Square.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the New Orleans tour planner.
