I bought the zoo ticket, aquarium ticket, and insectorium tickets in a bundle. This was a great deal for all 3 places. The zoo is a short driving distance, where the other two are walking distance from each other. My children enjoyed all 3 places...More

I spoke to a Chinese couple visiting there, they said they had been to Zoos all over the world and they liked Audubon Zoo the most. Gets crowded on weekends so go at 10:AM when it opens if you can

This zoo is a jewel. The layout of each area is superb. In particular, the Jaquar Jungle and the Bambu forest are great. Each animal area has lots of space and disractions for the animals. Some missing species that you normally find in a zoo...More

Great visit to Zoo in January on a beautiful day. Plenty to see and grounds are nice and clean. Glad visit was not in the summer or it would have been too hot.

We came here on a chilly day in January. The animals were out and about and the trek around the zoo was quite bearable in the weather (it could be miserable in the heat). We stopped three times for snacks and breaks around the zoo...More

Definitely don’t come around lunch as the options for food were atrocious and extremely limited. The zoo itself is awesome and wonderful. Very nice exhibits, reasonably priced and great staff. Crafty the Pygmy goat was the highlight!

The family went to Audubon Lights at the Zoo. The adults enjoyed it as much as the kids. There were all kinds of lights, and it was really fun.

Once again an event that was off the beaten path, at least as far as public transit is concerned. However this being the first year for this event, much of this can be excused. The main zoo site says that the street car is a...More

Uptown / Carrollton
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
