I went on down to the Audubon Zoo and they all axed for you! That is a song and you should hear it before or during your trip to this zoo. It's a little pricey if you're buying gifts but well worth the $ to support some beautiful animals and a great institution that does tons for the community including... More

Hadn't visited the zoo in many, many years. Rode the streetcar to the stop in front of Loyola and then took the zoo shuttle from the streetcar stop. Zoo has been, and is still being, completely renovated to perfection. The exhibits are interactive. The animal sanctuaries are large and clean. Wonderful selection of animals, reptiles, birds, etc. Great kid areas... More

I enjoyed my visit despite the fact there is a lot of construction going on for new exhibits plus a number of the animals were not in view due to it being cooler and in December. By mid 2015 it should be neat to see what has been updated.

The zoo is undergoing renovation, which causes a few inconveniences, but it is exciting to see the upcoming improvements. There are good directions for getting around the construction. We saw almost everything we had hoped to see, except for the seals. It was a great day.

Had a really good time at this zoo and I'm not really a zoo person. Lots to look at and easily took most of the afternoon. Great displays and all around theme. Only thing they need to work on is the ticket booths to get in. Took an hour to get two tickets for no good reason. The workers were... More

It seems there is something for everyone here - food, drink, entertainment of any type from classy to profane. Love it but can only take it for a couple of days before returning to reality

The Audubon Zoo have all the animals except lions. You find yourself meandering around and all of a sudden you come upon giraffes. If the weather is cooperative you will walk a few miles and get very close to all the animals. A very enjoyable afternoon

There is nothing to dislike about the zoo in New Orleans. It is one of the country's finest, and it includes a small water park for the kids. It truly is a garden of Eden in the city. You can spend a whole day here if you wanted. Get wet, eat lunch, and wander the garden paths to see the... More
