New Orleans’ vibrancy is perhaps best encapsulated in its numerous museums and parks. With a culture that celebrates individuality and expression, the city has much to take in.

More than 45 museums grace the city, where visitors explore worlds of fine art, local work, sculpture, history, architecture and, of course, music. From music, fine art and history to the National World War II Museum, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Preservation Hall, whatever you’re after can be found here.

And with hundreds of live oak groves and the cypress-rich bayous close by, New Orleans has parks that are perfect for everything from a picnic to an adventurous outing. For a boardwalk trek into swampland, check out Jean Laffite Park on the Westbank. The New Orleans Museum of Art sets an example for other art museum, and its grounds are perfectly situated in the grand New Orleans City Park. The attached sculpture garden is a wonderful introduction to the ancient live oaks that once served as silent ushers of antebellum pistol duels.
