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.
Explore hidden gems such as Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. For shopping fun, head to Royal Street or Faulkner House Books. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell), Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville) and Whitney Plantation (in Edgard). Spend the 24th (Fri) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of French Quarter, steep yourself in history at Nottoway Plantation, wander the streets of Garden District, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Audubon Zoo.
