N’Awlins Niblet (Part 4)

New Orleans: It’s not all beer, beads and boobies.

I think the Tourism Officials will be beating down my door to buy that slogan from me, don’t ya think?? LOL!
Believe it or not, New Orleans is a family-friendly City! With a toddler and an infant, we are always looking for fun things to do on the weekends. We like to play tourist in our own hometown and we haven’t run out of things to do yet.

Lily’s favorite thing to do is visit the Audubon Zoo and Aquarium!

After Hurricane Katrina, the Audubon Aquarium lost almost all 10,000 of their fish due to the failure of a backup generator. However, the Aquarium has bounced back and is now reopen to the public, better than ever. The Aquarium features a Caribbean Reef, an Amazon Rainforest, penguins, stingrays, sharks and more! One of the most popular attractions is the white alligator.

The Audubon Zoo escaped heavy damage during the Storm and only suffered the loss of two river otters and some downed trees. It escaped flood damage laregly because it is built on the highest ground in New Orleans, in fact, Monkey Hill located within the Zoo is the highest point in New Orleans. Today, the Zoo is ranked among the top in the Country and features an exotic mix of animals from around the globe. Lily LOVES the Endangered Species carousel and petting zoo!

If you are considering a trip to New Orleans, you don’t need to leave the kids at home!
