My family and I visited the Audubon zoo while in New Orleans. We really enjoyed the variety of animals in the zoo. The distance between visitors and the animals was short. We specially enjoyed watching the gorilla, cats and giraffes!!

I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Invest in your animal enclosures. The beautiful white tiger has an incredibly small area. Likewise for the leopard. Unacceptable.More

Always a great time. The swamp exhibit is really special. The whole zoo is clean and open and very well kept up.

This zoo is super nice. The habitats were just right, with the appropriate vegetation for the animals on exhibit. The animals were well cared for and healthy. Way to go, Audubon

One of the best zoos we have ever visited. The animals have large areas to move around in - the capybaras particularly have a lovely environment, with a lake to swim in as well as grassland.

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

and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s

We stayed Uptown in an Airbnb house. I prefer the extra room as compared to a hotel. Main drawback is a short bus or streetcar ride needed to the French Quarter, so you have to do a little more planning and time management... More
