Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some cultural insight at French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral. Step out of the city life by going to Audubon Zoo and Ship Island. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery (in Covington) and Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie). Spend the 19th (Thu) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Garden District, see the interesting displays at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, appreciate the extensive heritage of Royal Street, and learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum.

To find photos, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the New Orleans sightseeing planner.

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in July, and nighttime lows around 80°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
