“Great nature sitings at Barataria site.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

We visited the Barataria Preserve site to walk the trails and see some nature. Right out of the gate we saw many birds, lizards, and snakes (yikes). This is a good place to take some pictures.

“Free & Informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

As I was just strolling down a street I stumbled upon this museum. When I walked in the Park Ranger was so nice. This is a free activity that is full of information on the city, it’s culture and music. This activity is an at your own pace type of activity so you can spend as much time as you like inside and you can take pictures of different exhibits if you like.

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

A location that you would not find in many other locations. A great place to learn about the other side of New Orleans living and its variety of inhabitants. Come see an alligator!

“A nice retreat from all that jazz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is a peaceful place. You have to be real quiet and observe, and then all sorts if creatures come out. I saw giant grasshoppers, snakes, lizards (chameleon lizard!) and quite a few birds.
