Take a stroll on the Riverwalk

You can’t visit New Orleans and not take in the river; go see gigantic cruise ships in the harbor then head over to Mardi Gras World. Here, you can even choose a fun outfit and pretend to be part of the action!

Wander through the Audubon Insectarium

The Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium is a great place to venture solo or with the family. Learn about the multitude of different species and see the butterfly development process in the Metamorphosis room.
