New Orleans has totally surprised me.
A city that is mainly known for its festivals, food and partying is actually one of the most family friendly places we have visited in a long time.
The aquarium is located along the river walk. It is literally a ten-minute walk from our hotel, Maison Dupuy, which is in the French Quarters. Loved the fact that we didn’t have to take taxis to get here.
