Must-See Family Attractions in New Orleans

Although New Orleans could strike one as more of an adult playground, the Crescent City also provides kid-friendly recreational activities. From water sports and city tours to cultural and entertainment venues, it's no wonder New Orleans is celebrated as a family destination.

  • 1. New Orleans Cemeteries

    Something fascinating about the Cities of the Dead, as these cemeteries are known locally, is that instead of burying dead bodies in the ground, the French settlers entombed them. That's because this allegedly-haunted cemetery is set below sea level. Take a guided tour around the marble tombs and see the final resting places of Civil War Commander P.G. Beauregard and the alleged witch Marie Laveau.

  • 2. New Orleans Museum of Arts

    Opened in 1911, NOMA is the oldest art museum in the city. It started with only nine pieces of art but has grown to a collection of over 40,000 works, with French and American influences. The museum's notable objects include ancient African and Japanese relics, glassware, and photography. Walk around the museum and marvel at beautiful sculptures in an appealing setting.

  • 3. French Quarter

    Dubbed the Crown Treasure of New Orleans, the French Quarter was founded in 1718 and is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. You can't miss this neighborhood on your family vacation in New Orleans. Shop at antique stores with items that reflect the deep-rooted Creole culture, dine in centuries-old French restaurants, and see the Lalaurie Mansion, a now-empty supposedly haunted home.

  • 4. Storyland

    This kid's playground is nestled in City Park and features over 20 sculptures of fairytale characters. It's a child's dream come true, as they can climb aboard Captain Hook's ship, run around Jack 'n' Jill's ridge, or jump on the mouth of the whale from Pinocchio. Alternatively, they can enjoy time on the dragon slide, or shed some extra energy running around the well-maintained landscape under live oaks that are over 200 years old.

  • 5. Bayou St. John

    Visiting this vibrant community offers exploring families a chance to see old live oak trees and historic buildings exemplary of this French neighborhood. Rent a bike and ride along Esplanade Ave and see the landmark Creole mansions. While you're here, pop into Le Musée de F.P.C and learn about how Free People of Color shaped the New Orleans community. It also has exhibits and documents detailing the history and culture of African-Americans, starting from 300 years ago.
