Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Visiting Audubon Zoo and Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will get to explore The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Orleans: Oak Alley Plantation (in Vacherie) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). Spend the 16th (Mon) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of French Quarter, get a taste of the local shopping with Royal Street, wander the streets of Garden District, and see the interesting displays at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in July, and nighttime lows around 80°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
