Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The National WWII Museum and Garden District. Venture out of the city with trips to Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville), San Francisco Plantation (in Garyville) and Vacherie (Oak Alley Plantation, Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site, & more). Spend the 19th (Sun) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, examine the collection at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour, and steep yourself in history at Nottoway Plantation.
