Get a sense of local history via a steamboat cruise down the Mississippi River. This is a pefect way to get a panoramic view of the skyline, so plan to take some souvenir photos from the deck. Check out the traditional paddlewheel, then head inside for a scrumptious buffet featuring traditional Louisiana fare, accompanied by live music performed by local jazz musicians.
If your family enjoys cycling and seeing the sights in fresh air, sign up for a guided bike tour in New Orleans. These tours typically start in the French Quarter, where you'll meet your guide to head out to historic streets and the hip Faubourg Marigny neighborhood.

This three-and-a-half hour ride will be a memorable experience for the whole family.
