There are not a lot of each variety, but they are displayed very well in open enclosures. Get the Audubon combo ticket that includes the aquarium and butterfly house. Take the streetcar for $3 day pass.

We went to the Audobon Zoo in New Orleans. We liked seeing all the animals. The Audobon Zoo has been around since 1884.

Very 2 year old friendly zoo. It is perfect for a short afternoon visit before nap time. She could see every one of her favorite animals! Plenty of activities for small ones, be sure to check the activity schedule!

Wherever we travel, we try to visit the local zoos. The Audubon is never a disappointment. Take several hours to leisurely enjoy.

Went to Boo At The Zoo. Long lines for the Ghost Train (not really a train, BTW) but overall a nice experience. Will seek to attend again next year.

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
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
