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.
Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Garden District are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Houmas House Plantation and Gardens and Lafayette Cemetery No.1. Venture out of the city with trips to Whitney Plantation (in Edgard), Beauvoir (in Biloxi) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through French Quarter, make a trip to Jackson Square, explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake Lawn Metairie, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Louis Cathedral.

For photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our New Orleans trip planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 80°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
