Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Royal Street and Faulkner House Books. Get some historical perspective at Jackson Square and French Quarter. Venture out of the city with trips to Fairview-Riverside State Park (in Madisonville), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Insta-Gator Ranch & Hatchery (in Covington). Spend the 22nd (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden District, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Audubon Zoo, wander the streets of Frenchmen Street, and go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour.
