Things to Do in New Orleans

The entire city of New Orleans is etched with a history so beautiful and enthralling, that even your kiddos will be fascinated with these New Orleans historical sites. Here are a few of the best ways you can explore the city’s compelling and lamentable past.

Explore a Museum

What better way to begin your historical journey than with a trip to one of the city’s many history museums, such as The Historic New Orleans Collection? Wander through intriguing exhibits, watch history unfold on a big screen, marvel at influential artifacts, and gain a deep understanding and respect for the marvelous city of New Orleans.

Tour a Plantation

Once upon a time, New Orleans was home to more millionaires than any other city in America. Tour the immaculate mansions of old Southern wealth for a first-hand look at how the rich and powerful lived in the early 1800s. Book a tour at the Laura Plantation, which was rated by Lonely Planet Travel as the best history tour in the United States, step inside the Oak Alley Plantation, or dine at the Houmas House (a.k.a. The Crown Jewel of Louisiana’s River Road).

New Orleans Cemeteries

How many cities can label their cemeteries as tourist attractions? The New Orleans cemeteries (locally referred to as the Cities of the Dead) are definitely worth a visit. The beautiful and haunting marble chambers were a solution to the problems that arose from burying the dead in a swamp town below sea level. Not only are these immaculate graveyards a rare and stunning historical sight, but you can also visit the burial sites of those who left a significant imprint on New Orleans’ history, such as the revered Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau.
