The aquarium did a great job with the space they had available. Good movie selection. Nice displays and attractions. Helpful staff.

The Audobon Zoo is a large, wonderful place to spend a day. Take the Zoo Cruise from the foot of Canal St, in front of the Aquarium. Walk or ride the tram around the zoo, and don't miss the white alligator. Exit the Zoo away...More

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
