    Bourbon Street

    144 reviews

    Crazy street covered in drunk college kids, trannys, confused tourists with kids, old peeps who know how to party, wedding groups on a busy weekend night. Very festive and you can smell the wonderful fragrant of barf after midnight. People watching here is fun. It reminds me of the vegas scene but less classy and more happy drunkies at night ...

    The French Quarter

    119 reviews

    To me there are two sides to the French Quarter. The one with great restaurants, a rich history, and deep reflection of NOLA culture. And the other that is a reflection of all that is wrong with the world while you walk down Bourbon Street and breath in the stench of vomit, urine and hot garbage. I tend to focus ...

    Audubon Zoo

    53 reviews

    This is the zoo I grew up going to, so I'm biased. For their sake I will say that this is the best zoo IN THE WORLD. The lions never hide or sleep, the elephants do tricks, the monkeys never throw poop, the Hyenas laugh hysterically, the peacocks always show their feathers, and the animals at the petting zoo never ...

    French Market

    56 reviews

    Now when you are looking for those gifts to bring back for family and friends, this is the place to go. It will have unique pieces from artisans to the t-shirt vendor. And don't worry about food, so many vendors so you won't get hungry.

    Pat O'Brien's Bar

    53 reviews

    Pat O'Brien's is an expansive bar and lounge. Their cocktail drinks, particularly their bloody mary's, are great and are an excellent deal. I recommend going during happy hour.

    Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop

    50 reviews

    Built in 1772, this building is one of the oldest, if not THE oldest, continually-run bar in New Orleans, and perhaps in the entire United States. It looks like a dingy pirate haven, and, apparently, Jean Lafitte himself owned it for some time, using it until 1791 as his base for his Barataria smuggling operation, and he’s been reported to ...

    Aquarium Of The Americas

    45 reviews

    Alright, so there are so many things to do in New Orleans, that going to an aquarium may seem too touristy. But if you are a nature lover this is an awesome place. Not only does it have one of the largest collections, the educational value is well worth it.

    New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

    38 reviews

    The New Orleans Jazz Festival is the best possible place to see blues and jazz in a historically musical city. Top performers show up every year as well as locals playing cajun music, bluegrass and more on multiple stages. A must see for any music lover as the talent is endless among these musicians!

    Magazine Street

    39 reviews

    I am a frequent visitor of New Orleans, and I make sure to never miss visiting Magazine St. Whether I'm shopping or dining, I always have a great time! The vibe of the street is amazing and the choice of restaurants and stores has always been my favorite. If you've never been to New Orleans, I would definitely recommend Magazine. ...

    New Orleans City Park

    36 reviews

    The park was built during the Great Depression by the Works Progress Administration and is one of the largest and best urban parks in the US. The sculpture garden is free and a must see if you need a restful escape or peaceful stroll. The massive, Spanish moss draped Live Oaks, some over 800 years, now shade walkers and joggers ...

    House of Blues

    35 reviews

    This is a great venue to catch a show! The food is OK, there are many other better options for a meal. But for a drink and a concert, it is a great place to visit.

    Louisiana Superdome

    33 reviews

    I had a nice experience at the Superdome during the NBA All Star Game this year. The facility was very nice, and the only negative was trying to get in and out with all the crowds, which is to be expected.

    National World War II Museum

    31 reviews

    Well, this is five stars from my husband who loved it! I only went because it was a trade-off for something I wanted to do. For the WW2 buff, this place has it all; airplanes on display, a 4-D movie narrated by Tom Hanks, and lots of memorabilia. I actually found the tiny things very interesting. There were displays with ...

    Natchez Steamboat

    38 reviews

    The steamboat ride is delightful - a great way to see the riverfront, from the water. There's a bar, and they serve lunch and dinner - it's quite good. I've taken the boat in every season, and enjoyed it! The Port of New Orleans is one of the busiest in the world - best seen from the river!

    Saint Louis Cemetery #1

    30 reviews

    This city’s dead – and the odd practice of their flood-wary, above-ground burials – have attracted onlookers for centuries. And of all the cemeteries that dot the city, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 has to be the best known for being the oldest one still standing in the city (dating back to 1789) and holding a number of famous folks ...

    Preservation Hall

    26 reviews

    This is a New Orleans must. It's gritty, crowded, touristy and expensive on New Orleans standards and they don't serve alcohol but it has such a rich history and the musicians are so phenomenal, you've got to go at least once.

    Not as impressive as San Antonio's Riverwalk to me, more a shopping mecca than a scenic tour. Of course the RIVER is more impressive however!
