If you’re looking for a bit of greenery within the bustling city, look no further than the 14th Ward. The site of the 1884 World’s Fair is now the Audubon Park recreational area. Within the expansive park lies the Audubon Golf Course, Audubon Nature Institute, and Audubon Zoo.
If your visit brings you to New Orleans in the summer, a visit to the Whitney Young Pool will please all water-loving kids. Across the street from Audubon Park is Tulane University. Tulane’s campus is a sprawling 110 acres of 14th Ward beauty.
