In1987, my wife and I took our two young daughters on a Spring break tour of all 6 parks in the Jean Lafitte group. Changed our lives!
Music, food, culture were introduced and kept us coming back. Don’t miss the Barataria chapter. Tres bon!
I did not visit the park itself. I visited the visitor center on Decatur Street. Since the two are totally different experiences, don't assume that my comments here apply to the outdoor park.
I have been to a great many National Park visitor centers and...More
Steam boat ride on the Mississippi filled with excellent history and information by the narrator. Drinks and food available for purchase. Pleasant scenic ride. Great Ranger talk at the park but not much to see.
we did a swamp tour, they picked us up on Canal street and took us to the Park then out on pontoon boat into bayou and canals. Our guide Captain Jamie was very nice and very punny,
we saw some gators and soem lovely waterways
My husband and I took this trail about 3 years ago in the winter-not the time of course to see alligators, but we enjoyed seeing a lot of other wildlife as well as taking in the swamp. Went again last week while we were in...More
They took us to the bayou and we enjoyed seeing the alligators in their natural habitat. The pilot was really funny and the group not overly big, so lots of room for everyone to see. If you are going, I would recommend nighttime, as gators...More
Wonderful boardwalk through the swamp with plenty of wildlife to see! Trail is 4 miles round trip if you go to the end, so take water and maybe a snack. We only went about halfway and saw an alligator, raccoon, snakes and lots of local...More
Great exhibit of the history of New Orleans in a historical location built by the first architect of the city. Great signage, 7 minute movie, activities for kids, friendly staff and A/C, water and bathrooms. Plus it’s free!!!
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

I.m not sure of the temperature right now.I assume it's close to New Orleans weather. You will have to check the latest weather forecasts on your phone ,etc. It is summer now and it's in the lower 90's with no rain predicted... More

Yes you will but Wildlife activity will have diminished to some part due to it being a bit colder. That being said, I visited the area in early February and it was 80 degrees one day. Highly recommend this place for wildlife... More
