New Orleans is a city where you'll never run out of things to do. The French Quarter, where you'll find unique colonial architecture not found anywhere else in the United States, is probably where you'll spend most of your time and you can truly spend several days just strolling around there. If you get tired of French Quarter you can always take a cruise on the Mississippi River or learn about history at an old Plantation.
