3 Day Family Adventure Itinerary

alligatorDAY 1

Start the morning with beignets at Café Beignet then let the kids have fun running in Woldenberg Riverfront Park and dance to the tunes of the steam calliope from the nearby steamboat.

Take the 11:30 am Luncheon Cruise on the Steamboat Natchez and enjoy a 2-hour fun ride on the mighty Mississippi River!  Be sure to take the tour of the authentic steam engine room!  A variety of food options for kids of all ages.

Explore fun shops at Jax Brewery and the French Market – let your nose lead you to the pralines and ice cream being prepared.  While at the market be sure to walk through the famous Flea and Farmers Market where there is something for everyone in the family!

For dinner, enjoy a casual yet delicious meal at the Crescent City Brewhouse and mom and dad can even enjoy the special brew of the day!

DAY 2

A good hearty breakfast at Daisy Dukes will have the whole family ready for a day of adventure - an Audubon Adventure! 

Start the adventure at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas with their state-of-the-art exhibits of marine life indigenous to the Gulf South. You could spend the better part of the day at this one attraction, but be sure to make time to visit the Audubon Zoo too. You can take the historic St. Charles Avenue Streetcar to Audubon Park, then catch the shuttle bus to the Audubon Zoo, one of the top 5 zoos in the country! This could also be an all-day attraction, but a must-see even if only for a few hours!  

Enjoy a great casual dinner at either Acme Oyster HouseBubba Gump Shrimp Company or  Oceana Grill with some wonderful kid’s meal options!

DAY 3

Room service might be the way to go this morning so you can be picked up early at your hotel to take a real adventure into one of the nearby Louisiana Swamps.  

Huck Finn’s Café will be a great place for lunch following the exciting swamp experience and there might even be some alligator on the menu!  After lunch, walk to Maskerade to take home an original hand-made New Orleans mask!

A dip in the hotel pool might just be the perfect afternoon activity for the family along with a nice rest for a dress up dining experience at a famous New Orleans restaurants. Some of our favorites are Antoine's, Commander's PalaceCourt of Two Sisters, Brennan's, and Tujague’s

What a fabulous way to celebrate a 3-day family adventure in New Orleans!
