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.
Explore hidden gems such as Whitney Plantation and The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site (in Vacherie), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell) and Baton Rouge (Louisiana Memorial Plaza, Louisiana's Old State Capitol, &more). The adventure continues: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, make a trip to New Orleans Musical Legends Park, admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, and stroll the grounds of Lafayette Cemetery No.1.

Las Animas to New Orleans is an approximately 17-hour car ride. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Las Animas to New Orleans due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Las Animas in May, plan for slightly colder days and much warmer nights in New Orleans: temperatures range from 70°F by day to 70°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
