    This really exceeded my expectations. A very well done museum. Lots of immersive experiences, multimedia, I learnt a lot. Would thoroughly recommend,

    We wandered onto Frenchman Street, found a little pub, snagged a front row seat and enjoyed a great band for a couple of hours. Fun time.

    Get out of the French Quarter and come here! It was packed in the quarter so we took an Uber to City Park. What an amazing place, I can’t believe I haven’t been here before on previous visits. Don’t miss the grove of the ancients, the live oaks are huge!

    This is just a big park with Many seats in a fountain. I didn’t see any flowers in May but it gets really hot here.
    Nice statue of Andrew Jackson on a horse. Best attraction right at the top of the square is the cathedral of St. Louis with much history and free to enter.

    Been a few times, always the same, great vibe and a great city. Huge contrasts between the rich and poor, very sad to see in some places. Stepping over a body to cross canal street, not too sure if he was breathing or not, no one seems to give a toss. Took the wife this time, she found the local drink called a purple hurricane. Sold on a takeaway basis by street venders .Tasted like fruit juice, but has between 12 and 18 measures of spirits. I had beer. Two of these and she was gone. Couldn’t remember the night . Music and bands play all night as do local kids with upturned buckets, drumming away. Lovely for a visit , stay near the french quarter or you will be murdered. Best hotel for a pit of piece and away from the noise it called “ the b” on canal street

    Great experience! The band was fantastic and we really enjoyed the music! It’s hot and very small venue but only 45 minutes so heat is tolerable. Would go again.

    I took my crew along with my nieces,nephews and a friend of my son. We visited on a Saturday afternoon. There is ample parking however keep it mind that the zoo becomes very crowded on the weekend making parking difficult.

    Price affordable however if you are New Orleans resident you can obtain a culture pass and visit for free.

    The zoo is bigger than you think. Wear comfortable shoes. There is a reptile section, there are a number of gift shops,there are restaurants for you to grab a bite to eat .

    There was also a sno cone truck which came in handy due to NOLA humid weather.

    Typical zoo animals only thing special to me was the albino alligator.

    Overall great visit kids loved it .

    This is an outstanding exhibit of various characters used on the Mardi Gras floats. A huge collection of past floats and a chance to see current artists making new float characters.

    My wife and I visited St. Louis Cemetery No 1 during a recent stay in the city. Earlier, we had learned that Lafayette Cemetery No 1 is temporarily closed for repairs so decided to visit the oldest cemetery in the city. You cannot walk through unguided so we paid the fee and joined a small tour group of about a dozen people. The most important aspect of a successful tour is a great tour guide, and our guide, Denise, was a good storyteller, and she was knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. We had a wonderful tour, and our guide had everything to do with it.

    Without a car this is a great way to get around. Used it to go uptown for restaurants, to the French market and through the Garden District. We bought the 3 day pass and it was great to use when we wanted a lift back to the hotel or up to a restaurant. Very good value!

    For this part of the world, it's quite grand. An imposing building with interesting features. Interior is very French influenced, especially the stained glass. Definitely worth a peek inside,

    You can learn more about NOLA's history & music here. It's quiet & cool and sometimes there's a band playing in the courtyard.

    An interesting street in the French Quarter. A wide variety of bars, souvenir shops, etc. Somewhat of a typical FQ street.
