New Orleans 
Hey all, i am planning a trip to the "big easy" and was looking for some feedback. I am going with my children who are both under the age of ten but am concerned that NO will not have many activities for them. I know NO is a great place for adults but what about for children? Are there lots of family activities? I know this may sound ignorant, but is the city safe? I have read that NO has a very high crime rate. I would love to contribute money to the Gulf region since they have been through so much and can really use the support, however, if this is not a great place for my family and I to go, then perhaps NO isn't for us. Please let me know! Thank you in advance.

Re: New Orleans 
Hey Angela,

NO is a great place for both adults and children. There are plenty of activities geared for all ages. Take a walk through the Garden District or take a tour through NO on the trolley. It is a beautiful city. NO is also host to some of the most interesting cemeteries; it is truly a site to behold. I would also recommend you take an alligator swamp tour. NO has arguably the best music scene so be sure to check out some live music. As far as crime, it's like any other city; there are good and bad parts. Just use your judgement. Good luck on your decision!

Re: New Orleans 
Those alligator swamp tours are fun! They give the alligators marshmallows and the gators love them! The alligators are really funny, they love the spotlight and really play up to it.

If you go be sure to put on bug repellent - the insects are brutal.

Re: New Orleans 
Hey all,

Thanks for your great responses! Do you recommend any swamp tours in particular? Also, our family loves the beach. Are there beaches around New Orleans? Sorry again for my ignorance, I know its near beaches but I haven't heard much about the water there. With the state of the gulf region, are the beaches safe? As you can see, I have many questions about my trip. If you guys have any more suggestions please don't hesitate!
