New Orleans

Need a break from the daily grind? New Orleans boasts a good number of visitor attractions.

It is an area of Eastern Louisiana that around 340,000 people reside in.

You'll find this destination approximately 75 miles from Baton Rouge, the state capital of Louisiana. It's also around 15 miles from Barataria.

Give the kids a treat and enjoy some quality time at Audubon Insectarium and the Prytania Theatre. The Louisiana Children's Museum and John P Lyons Memorial Center are also well worth checking out if you're looking for more family fun.

Dive below the surface of the ocean and discover a world of aquatic treasures at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.

The Audubon Zoo is a terrific place to bring the kids for a fun-filled morning among big and small critters. Be sure to ask the staff about hands-on activities and where to find the zoo's favorite species.

Take in the sparkling chrome of the high-performance vehicles and cheer on the drivers as they flash past at breakneck speeds at the NOLA Motorsports Park.

The Boomtown Casino, the Treasure Chest Casino and the Harrah's New Orleans Casino are sure bets if you're ready to take on the blackjack dealer.

If you're hoping to see some of the local flora, a visit to the New Orleans Botanical Garden and the Botanical Gardens is a great idea.

Bring along a bite to eat and enjoy the quiet, green surroundings of Jackson Square and Audubon Park. City Park and Morgan Park are two more pleasant spots to while away the afternoon and finally read that neglected book of yours.

Discover a bit more about the area by stopping off at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve Visitor Center and Basin St. Station Visitor Information Cultural Center. You might also like to browse the maps and brochures at Gretna Green Blacksmith Shop and New Orleans Folklife and Visitor Center.

Spending time in nature is so important for our health. So if you get the opportunity to swing by Bayou Segnette State Park or Pondicherry Wildlife Reserve, run, don't walk!

See the world from a different perspective by visiting one of the area's wonderfully curated cultural institutions. Enjoy the cool and quiet interior as you check out the displays at the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum and the Old Ursuline Convent. Another two to consider are the Historic Voodoo Museum and the New Orleans Fire Department Museum and Educational Center.

Accounts of this area's nautical traditions are embodied in the remnants of obsolete watercraft on display at the Louisiana Maritime Museum.

Inquiring minds should make time for Rivertown Museum & Kenner Planetarium, a science and natural history center.

The collection of objects and specimens at the Louisiana Wildlife Museum will provide you with a captivating glimpse into the world of science.

Add to your knowledge of art and design, and perhaps even find something for the lounge room at one of the area's numerous exhibition spaces. Start off your tour of this creative destination at the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. If you can fit them in, the Callan Contemporary and the Berta’s & Mina’s Antiquities are also well worth a look.

Go back to a time long since forgotten and uncover mysteries of the past at the National World War II Museum or the Cabildo. The Historic New Orleans Collection and the Louisiana State Museum are also respected choices.

The Tulane University and the Loyola University New Orleans are certainly worth visiting, even if you aren't a history buff. More tales from the days of yore are waiting for you at the Dillard University and Greenwood Cemetery.

The spiritual side of the area can be experienced at Saint Joseph Church and St Patricks Church. If you'd like to check out more religious sites, have a walk about Saint Louis Cathedral and Saint Augustine Church.

New Orleans' most famed sights can overshadow its less visited, yet equally rewarding attractions. The Mardi Gras World and the Contemporary Arts Center are two good options. Also, consider a trip to Spanish Plaza and the Rivertown Repertory Theatre if you've got the time.
