New Orleans Holidays

This part of Eastern Louisiana boasts a population of 340 000 residents.

Baton Rouge, the state capital, can be found approximately 120 kilometres to the northwest of this destination. Alternatively, Barataria is 25 kilometres to the south.

New Orleans has an extensive number of good family friendly activities. First off, we suggest that you explore the Prytania Theatre and the Louisiana Children's Museum. Make sure you also let the kids have fun at John P Lyons Memorial Centre and the Old Us Mint.

Millions of species inhabit our oceans, so you and your family had better start introducing yourselves. Stop by Audubon Aquarium of the Americas to get to know some of the familiar, and the not so familiar, aquatic animals of the deep blue.

Come face to face with a few of your favourite animals at the Audubon Zoo, a destination that the whole gang is bound to love.

"It doesn't matter how slowly you go, as long as you don't stop," does not apply when you and your mates are shooting around the track at the NOLA Motorsports Park.

If you're feeling a lucky streak coming on, you might like to roll the dice at one of the city's fantastic casinos. The most visited spot is the Boomtown Casino. If you're still running hot, you should consider a stop at the Treasure Chest Casino and the Harrah's New Orleans Casino.

If you enjoy the world of plants and landscaping techniques, make sure you check out a couple of New Orleans' botanical parks. Enjoy the smell of growing plants at the New Orleans Botanical Garden, or stroll around the Botanical Gardens.

Fed up with sightseeing? Take a break in one or two of this region's pleasant green spaces. Jackson Square and Audubon Park are two fantastic spots in which to find a nice quiet stretch of grass. On the other hand, City Park and Morgan Park may be more convenient depending on your location.

If you and your friends will be staying in New Orleans, go to some of the tourist offices close by. On a detour to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve Visitor Centre or Basin St. Station Visitor Information Cultural Centre, you can get some background information on the most interesting attraction in the region. You may get more extensive information to plan your trip with if you spend extra time visiting the other spots close by, such as Gretna Green Blacksmith Shop and New Orleans Folklife and Visitor Centre.

Whether you and your mates are adventure enthusiasts or you simply love the environment, a day trip to some of the nature conservation areas won't disappoint. Head to Bayou Segnette State Park. If you have more time, try Pondicherry Wildlife Reserve.

Love museums? If so, you'll be stoked with this destination. Here, you can find a nice choice of exhibition spaces. Start off with the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum or the Old Ursuline Convent. If you are looking for something more to do, you could also visit the Historic Voodoo Museum or BECA Gallery - Bridge for Emerging Contemporary Art.

The Louisiana Maritime Museum can be a good site to discover the area's interesting history of seafaring and adventure.

Keen to give your brain a workout in New Orleans? Make tracks to the Audubon Insectarium or Rivertown Museum & Kenner Planetarium. Whether you're an amateur scientist or just a curious minded visitor, you'll be sure to have a rewarding time taking a wander around the varied collections.
