Top Activities in New Orleans for Kids


11. Mardi Gras

What, Mardi Gras? If you're thinking, who in their right mind would take a child to Mardi Gras, you have either never been here or you've only stayed in the French Quarter when you came. It's true that the media loves to show the "exposures" for beads that goes on Bourbon Street. But, there's a side of Mardi Gras few outsiders even know about and it can be one of the best vacations your family ever had.

12. Have Your Own Streetcar Party

There's a lot of fun to be had in your own streetcar. Decorate it and bring food for a great birthday celebration. This is a unique way to celebrate any special occasion.

13. The French Quarter

Bourbon Street is not a street for kids. But there are other streets in the French Quarter that are great for kids during the day. Decatur and Royal don't have the strip clubs and bars that are on Bourbon Street. There are some interesting shops, one with nothing but toy soldiers, and there are street performers, artists, palm-readers all around.
