Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get outdoors at Ultimate Swamp Adventures and Global Wildlife Center. Kids will enjoy The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA and Jackson Square. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Saint Francisville (Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site & The Myrtles Plantation), Whitney Plantation (in Wallace) and Biloxi Beach (in Biloxi). Next up on the itinerary: put a fun spin on your tour with Escape My Room New Orleans, look for gifts at Faulkner House Books, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Immaculate Conception Church, and admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral.
