NEW ORLEANS: Audubon Aquarium of the Americas | YOU WON'T BELIEVE Everything That We Saw
????WATCH NEXT: This is part 3 of a 3 part travel series of our family trip to New Orleans. Start watching from the beginning by watching this video:
Today we are in New Orleans and going to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. To get there we took the Algiers Ferry because that looked like one of the fun things to do in New Orleans with kids.
We haven't taken the kids to the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans, so we are hoping to do the entire Audubon Experience this year. We have been to many aquariums and this is our favorite!
As you walk through the aquarium there are many areas to explore from North and South America, from the Amazon to the Mississippi River, and from the swamp to the arctic.
The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, which is located along the Mississippi Riverwalk in New Orleans, is definitely a place to visit in New Orleans. You will see a variety of fish, including sting rays, penguins, sharks, and even a sea turtle and a whole lot of parakeets, which you can feed.
If you are looking for things to do in New Orleans in July or August, it's usually really hot outside, so the aquarium is a great place to get inside and cool off on a hot Louisiana day.

Places to see in ( New Orleans - USA ) Audubon Aquarium of the Americas
Looming large against the Mississippi River is the extraordinary Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, one of the top museums of its kind in America. Here the visitor finds 15,000 sea life creatures, representing nearly 600 species, living happily in a state-of-the-art facility.
The world-renown Audubon Aquarium is home to fish and sea life of all kinds - and visitors can get up close, eye-to-eye if you please, with some of the most fascinating creatures of the ocean. The Caribbean Reef tunnel, for example, is 30 feet long and allows the visitor a view of the Caribbean sea life viewed only by divers. The new Seahorses Gallery showcases these beautiful creatures as they swim gracefully between the grasses in their home and glide through the water. Remember, only the MALE seahorses give birth.
At the Audubon Aquarium visitors also find rare and endangered species. Look for the white alligator - just 18 of these animals were found in a Louisiana swamp. These alligators are not albino - their steely blue eyes and white skin are mesmerizing. In Cajun lore, seeing a white alligator is considered good luck!
Want to pet a shark? Here's your chance. The shark touch pool allows visitors to touch a baby shark and talk with the naturalist. Want to be entertained by Sea Otters, rare neon colored frogs or jaunty penguins? They are all here! The half-million-gallon Gulf of Mexico exhibit teems with fully-grown sharks and undersea life that thrive around the barnacled pilings of a simulated oil rig. If anaconda snakes, poisonous frogs and stunning exotic birds are your interest, then visit the Aquarium's Amazon rain forest exhibit.
Plan to spend several hours or all day in this amazing museum filled with aquatic life you’ve only read about. A small cafe is on site, as is a wonderful gift shop. The Audubon Aquarium is available for rental for large receptions and corporate entertaining.

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States, North America
New Orleans is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana. The population of the city was 343,829 as of the 2010 U.S. Census. The New Orleans metropolitan area (New Orleans--Metairie--Kenner Metropolitan Statistical Area) had a population of 1,167,764 in 2010 and was the 46th largest in the United States. The New Orleans--Metairie--Bogalusa Combined Statistical Area, a larger trading area, had a 2010 population of 1,214,932. The city is named after the Duke of Orleans, who reigned as Regent for Louis XV from 1715 to 1723, and is well known for its distinct French Creole architecture, as well as its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. New Orleans is also famous for its cuisine, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The city is often referred to as the most unique in America. New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana, straddling the Mississippi River. The city and Orleans Parish (French: paroisse d'Orléans) are coterminous. The city and parish are bounded by the parishes of St. Tammany to the north, St. Bernard to the east, Plaquemines to the south and Jefferson to the south and west. Lake Pontchartrain, part of which is included in the city limits, lies to the north and Lake Borgne lies to the east. New Orleans has many major attractions, from the world-renowned French Quarter and Bourbon Street's notorious nightlife to St. Charles Avenue (home of Tulane and Loyola Universities, the historic Pontchartrain Hotel, and many 19th-century mansions), to Magazine Street, with its many boutique stores and antique shops. According to current travel guides, New Orleans is one of the top ten most visited cities in the United States; 10.1 million visitors came to New Orleans in 2004, and the city was on pace to break that level of visitation in 2005. Prior to Katrina, there were 265 hotels with 38,338 rooms in the Greater New Orleans Area. In May 2007, there were over 140 hotels and motels in operation with over 31,000 rooms. A 2009 Travel + Leisure poll of America's Favorite Cities ranked New Orleans first in ten categories, the most first-place rankings of the 30 cities included. According to the poll, New Orleans is the best U.S. city as a spring break destination and for wild weekends, stylish boutique hotels, cocktail hours, singles/bar scenes, live music/concerts and bands, antique and vintage shops, cafés/coffee bars, neighborhood restaurants, and people watching. The city also ranked second for gay friendliness (behind San Francisco, California), friendliness (behind Charleston, South Carolina), bed and bath hotels and inns, and ethnic food. However the city was voted last in terms of active residents and near the bottom in cleanliness, safety, and as a family destination. The French Quarter (known locally as the Quarter or Vieux Carré), which dates from the French and Spanish eras and is bounded by the Mississippi River, Rampart Street, Canal Street, and Esplanade Avenue, contains many popular hotels, bars, and nightclubs. Notable tourist attractions in the Quarter include Bourbon Street, Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, the French Market (including Café du Monde, famous for café au lait and beignets) and Preservation Hall. To tour the port, one can ride the Natchez, an authentic steamboat with a calliope, which cruises the Mississippi the length of the city twice daily. Unlike most other places in The United States, and the world, New Orleans has become widely known for its element of elegant decay. The city's many beautiful cemeteries and their distinct above-ground tombs are often attractions in themselves, the oldest and most famous of which, Saint Louis Cemetery, greatly resembles Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Also located in the French Quarter is the old New Orleans Mint, a former branch of the United States Mint, which now operates as a museum, and The Historic New Orleans Collection, a museum and research center housing art and artifacts relating to the history of New Orleans and the Gulf South. The National World War II Museum, opened in the Warehouse District in 2000 as the National D-Day Museum, is dedicated to providing information and materials related to the Invasion of Normandy. Nearby, Confederate Memorial Hall, the oldest continually operating museum in Louisiana (although under renovation since Katrina), contains the second-largest collection of Confederate memorabilia in the world. Art museums in the city include the Contemporary Arts Center, the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) in City Park, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
