    You don’t want to miss this amazing museum! It is mind boggling how much work and effort went into the presentations and displays. What a wonderful way to remember all of the men and women who sacrificed their lives for all of us! God Bless our Veterans and America!

    The Garden District is very impressive. Some of the houses are stunning. The ornate balconies with hanging baskets and rocking chairs on the porches are exactly as you would imagine them to be only more beautiful. Goodness only knows how much these kind of properties would cost to buy!! Go on the St. Charles St streetcar, $1.25 then at least we can look for free!!

    Although this area can get very busy on times, its such an iconic place that you can't afford to miss out. We were there one afternoon and all of a sudden it was empty, it seemed we had the place all to ourselves and it looked so beautiful!

    Historic architecture. In the evening lots of bars opened with dancing and bands. Lots of shops with unique items.. Honestly, one time to visit is good.
    What I would advice to visit is Court of two sisters -branch buffet . Food is so so , but the atmosphere and sitting area is like you are back in 1900. And also right across the The court of two sisters restaurant there is a gallery called M.S. Rau. Thats is AMAZING place to visit. Fine art, Antiques , Jewels , paintings it is a wow place.

    Incredible experience. Didn’t make reservations and saw people lining up at such a random spot. The bartender across the street recommended we try to get in. Was able to score the last two seats. Incredible time. It got a bit hot but it made the atmosphere come to life.

    This is one of the nicest zoos I have been to. The theming is perfect. I wish more of the animals were out at the time we were there. The walk around the zoo was not crowded and the viewing areas were easy to access while walking. (Some areas had a VERY strong fishy odor.., but I guess that happens with water.)

    What a neat place to visit. The making of the floats and the history is well worth your time. Touring the behind the scenes area was great. All the creative minds and what they have made for the floats over the years. Anyone will love it if all ages.

    The streetcars are very cheap, $1.25 each way or get a 1 day Jazzy pass $3 There are 3 and 30 day passes but i'm not sure how much they cost. The street cars are very frequent and you can get to Audubon Zoo, City Park, NOMA and the French market easily using them. When its raining just jump on one, see the sites and stay dry, win win!!

    I was surprised the cathedral was open for public entry. It was beautiful. The people were solemn and respectful.

    We were the only people we saw when we visited, nice .5 mile to mile trails, saw gators, crazy spiders, crickets and birds. Our son was able to do a little fishing here.

    Royal Street is fantastic, its one of my favourite streets in New Orleans. It feels very up market with art galleries, fine hotels, boutiques, restaurants and bars. Worlds away from its brash neighbour in the next street (Bourbon St)
