The Big Easy - for Families


The Riverwalk
Walk along the Mississippi as the paddleboats and ferries drift by. The Aquarium of the Americas is located here (featuring a squeal-inducing underwater tunnel), as well as the Entergy IMAX Theatre.

Proceed with Caution
Bourbon Street has a raucous reputation for a reason. This area is lined with strip clubs and bars whose rowdy crowds spill onto the street. Steer clear of this area at night if you're with the kids.

Although New Orleans' cemeteries are eerily beautiful, the matter-of-fact way in which locals deal with the dead (interring them into above-ground family tombs and bagging the previous remains) may be too much for small children to handle. They are also a favorite spot for purse snatchers. Save this attraction for a parents-only trip.
