Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Laura Plantation and Royal Street. Head to French Market and Earth Odyssey LLCfor plenty of shopping. Step out of New Orleans with an excursion to Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie--about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: learn about all things military at The National WWII Museum, explore the different monuments and memorials at Lafayette Cemetery No.1, stop by Louisiana Music Factory, and examine the collection at Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World.
