More New Orleans Area Information
New Orleans is known for its food, and with good reason. The food is amazing. There are other great things about The Big Easy though, and we want to help you find them. Whether you’re new to the city or practically live here, the websites listed below are great resources for planning a fun New Orleans trip. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
There are a lot of great things to do while you’re in New Orleans, but as locals, we especially recommend doing these:
- Hop aboard the Steamboat Natchez for a cruise down the Mississippi River. Morning, afternoon, and evening cruises are available, and it’s a great time to listen to some live jazz, eat Creole cuisine, and sip on the best Mint Julep in town.
- Visiting with artists and watch the street performers in Jackson Square.
- Animal watching at the Audubon Zoo. Take the streetcar through the Garden District and Uptown to the zoo to see some beautiful neighborhoods. When you’re ready to leave, take a walk through Audubon Park back to the streetcar line.
- Brush up on your history at the National WWII Museum. The 4D movie and kids activities are especially great!
