As always, these are OUR opinions. Someone else may have completely different parts of New Orleans that they love! I am a mom, and they most recent trip I took I was with my baby. I have also traveled their pregnant, and as a very young person. What this means is that you will not find bars and pubs (for the most part) on this list. Most of the places mentioned are kid friendly. If they are not kid-friendly, I will ALWAYS tell you!
1. Cafe Du Monde. Is anyone surprised that I would list a coffee shop as my #1 pick? If you have never experienced Cafe Du Monde before, you may look at the line and think, "No way." But trust me, the line is worth it. The coffee is AMAZING! They serve Cafe Au Lait a la French style coffee, and although I would not go as far to say that it is just like being in Paris, it is worth the wait in line! You also want to make sure you get FRESH Beignets! They are hot out of the oven, and are simply amazing!
2. St. Louis Cathedral. This church is both beautiful and historical. It is the oldest cathedral in all of North America, and it is simply stunning--inside and out. It sits in a convenient location to almost all of the other places you simply cannot miss!
Other places of mention:
Because of the age of my children I traveled and other circumstances there were some places I did not visit that I have heard rave reviews about. Included in those sites are:
- St. Louis Cemetery
- Haunted/ Ghost tours
- Gator tours
- City Park
- Garden District
