Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
You've added The Historic New Orleans Collection, New Orleans City Park, Chart Room, and other attractions to your itinerary. Museum-lovers will appreciate The National WWII Museum and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Get some cultural insight at French Quarter and Garden District. Step out of New Orleans to go to Vacherie and see Oak Alley Plantation, which is approximately 1 hour away. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Louis Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of Jackson Square, browse the eclectic array of goods at Frenchmen Street, and stroll the grounds of Lafayette Cemetery No.1.
