Best Family Activities



Description:

New Orleans has the reputation of being a wild party city, but it is actually a very family-oriented place full of attractions to delight children and adults alike. Even Mardi Gras can be kid-friendly if you watch the parades from Uptown past Lee Circle instead of downtown near the French Quarter. The Audubon Zoo, Aquarium of the Americas , IMAX Theater, Insectarium, and John James Audubon Ferry are all connected, so if you plan on doing more than one of them, check out discounted rates for package deals. And don't miss City Park where your children can enjoy amusement park rides in Carousel Gardens or play make-believe in the quaint Storyland.
