New Orleans
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 Ship Island and St. Joseph Plantation. Visiting Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve and Global Wildlife Center will get you outdoors. Explore New Orleans' surroundings by going to National Hansen's Disease Museum (in Carville), Kliebert's Turtle & Alligator Farm (in Hammond) and Mandeville (Fontainebleau State Park & Mandeville Trailhead Cultural Interpretive Center). There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Oak Alley Plantation, see the interesting displays at Mardi Gras World, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Jackson Square.
