New Orleans is perhaps better known for hot times than cool things to do - but there are plenty of the latter as well here in the Big Easy. The New Orleans Vampire Tour is a famous 1.5-hour tour that allows you to enter the dark and mysterious world of the undead - or so they claim. Walk through New Orleans' history and experience the legends of famous New Orleans vampires, "real" and fictional. The New Orleans Haunted History Ghost Tour also explores the dark side, focusing on the grim and ghastly deeds of the old French Quarter. Secret and sinister, most of the events occurred a very long time ago - luckily for you. For a more refreshing time out, try the Audubon Zoo, which features habitats from the critter-filled swamps of Louisiana to the grasslands of Africa. Rated one of the top zoos in the United States, it features two rare white tigers, as well as Komodo dragons. So grab a cool drink and check out the many cool things to do in New Orleans.
