I like to spend a few hours with the kids at the Insectarium then wlak over to the French Quarter.
If you like insects this is the place for you. You can view3 them up close and even taste a cooked bug from the chefs at the insectarium. The butterfly garden has ponds with fish and benches where you can sit and relax. It is a very peaceful spot.

The Aquarium transports visitors to an underwater world from the Caribbean, to the Amazon Rainforest, to the waters that give New Orleans its lifeblood: the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico. With more than 3,600 animals from more than 250 species, including endangered species, such as African penguins, and rare animals, such as white alligators, the Aquarium offers you an experience you'll never forget.”
