Get some cultural insight at Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Royal Street. Head to Frenchmen Street and Faulkner House Booksfor some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting New Orleans side-trips: Whitney Plantation (in Edgard), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Slidell). Spend the 22nd (Fri) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through French Quarter, make a trip to Jackson Square, explore the world behind art at Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District.
