The Big Easy

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
French Quarter and St. Louis Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Change things up with a short trip to Nature & Wildlife Tours in Slidell (about 48 minutes away). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, look for all kinds of wild species at Old River Road Plantation Adventure, make a trip to Jackson Square, and examine the collection at New Orleans Museum of Art.
