I love the Audubon Zoo. It is such a wonderful zoo and if you have time, you should visit it. One of my favorite things to see in the zoo is the albino alligator. They are rare and something spectacular to behold. It is a great place for children to visit. It really is a great zoo and I visit... More

Even for the adults this is a great place to be! If you want to bring the kids for a day out to see animals and have some fun yourself this is the place to do it. Whether you are just visiting Louisiana or if you are a permanent resident that just has never been to this ZOO before you... More

We come to their children events here often. The latest one we went to was "Boo at the ZOO". They really make it a good time for the children with plenty of activities. The zoo itself is not super large. It is a great place to go to spend the day and look at the exhibits.

I've been several times and enjoy seeing the white tigers and the Cajun lifestyle exhibits. It's a great place for a family day out

One of our favorite stops here in New Orleans -- the Audubon Aquarium never ceases to amaze. Each time we visit, there's another display that totally entertains. Although our favorite is the penguin area, we always sit down at the huge fish tank and relax with the finny guys. Food, rest rooms and great air conditioning on those "warmer" New... More

We spent a little over a half day here and enjoyed it. It is not a big zoo but it is spread out so it requires a decent amount of walking. I did like how the animals were spread out in larger enclosures. Decent mix of larger animals plus some local influences like the swamp displays. Nice grounds too. Free... More

We enjoyed the zoo but what made the visit really worthwhile was seeing white alligators. I didn't even know these existed and it was fun to see them. Not being from the area the swamp exhibit or Mississippi River exhibit was worthwhile. Of course, they have the other usual suspects to see as well.

This is a must see if you go to NO with children. We went when family with children came and enjoyed it more than we expected. Nicely maintained grounds, animals are well cared for and the zoo was very clean. Lots of places to eat and sit when warm out. We visited in January and some of these were closed.... More

This zoo is still under some construction but a very nice zoo. The lay out is nice, a good variety of animals with some beautiful habitats and the people and workers were super nice. I'd definitely visit again.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
