Feast on iconic local cuisine
New Orleans is a hotbed of Creole and Cajun cooking, and many of the French Quarter's restaurants serve classic dishes like seafood gumbo, jambalaya, and crawfish etouffee. A perfect lunchtime pick is the po'boy sandwich, served on freshly-baked crusty bread and usually stuffed with roast beef or seafood. Kids will love the donut-like beignets, squares of deep-fried dough sprinkled with sugar. If you want to whip up a meal in your vacation condo, there are several farmers' markets in the French Quarter selling local produce for your dinner or picnic.
There's more to the culinary scene in New Orleans. A thriving contemporary and fine dining scene graces the city as well. One of the best-known restaurants in the French Quarter is Brennan's, which was established in 1946 and serves traditional Creole dishes with a modern twist. Another option is Restaurant R'evolution, with its tasting menus that change according to season, crafted with the very best ingredients Louisiana has to offer.
Making the most of New Orleans with children
Kids will love the color, and energy of New Orleans, and there's plenty of attractions here geared to families and children. The Louisiana Children's Museum, occupying a 8.5-acre campus close to the French Quarter, houses exhibits with an emphasis on the natural world. Inside, kids can get hands-on with science experiments, and find out about the wildlife native to the Mississippi River. Outside, they can get lost in the labyrinth, learn more about local pelicans, and find out about how food is grown in the edible garden.
Aniother great option down on the banks of the Mississippi is the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. Large tanks and walk-through tunnels recreate the natural habitats of sharks, seahorses, otters, and more. The aquarium is partnered with New Orleans' zoo and insectarium, which are also definitely worth a visit for your young animal enthusiasts. Outside the aquarium, the kids can play along the waterfront Woldenberg Park as you take in the scenic river views.
History, traditions, and more
Part of the joy of the French Quarter is the freedom to stroll at leisure, with new discoveries around every corner. There's a number of key highlights which most visitors want to include, and one of these is the Beauregard-Keyes House on Chartres Street, a mansion dating from the 1820s and furnished in Civil War-era style. Guided tours leave every hour on the hour, or explore the rooms and elegant gardens at your own pace.
The French Quarter is also world-famous for its Mardi Gras celebrations, held annually at the start of Lent. Whatever the time of year, make a visit to Mardi Gras World, and get up close to some of the enormous floats and sculptures that have paraded through the city's streets. See floats being built for future celebrations, and learn about the history of the festival and its importance to the city's identity and culture.
Mardi Gras and music galore
Mardi Gras is by far the most important event on New Orleans' social calendar. The exact date of the festival is held on a Tuesday in February but changes yearly, as it's linked to Lent and Easter. The action starts at the beginning of the month, with more low-key parades gradually building up to the main parade on the actual Tuesday itself. One of the best spots to watch the floats and dancers pass is at Lee Circle, just south of the French Quarter.
Another great festival is the French Quarter Festival, a four-day music festival held each April. All the performances are free, with over 1,700 musicians performing live music across the French Quarter. Pick up one of the free guides detailing the program of events, and spend a pleasant afternoon in the spring sunshine enjoying a range of New Orleans-focused music genres including jazz, blues, zydeco, gospel, and funk.
