Travel Haiku - New Orleans (United States)
new orleans, that's why
the jazz singer sings 'something
hippie for everybody'
exporting jazz, exporting
the heart of joy, of love, of me and you
Though New Orleans has a reputation for its parties, booze, and Bourbon Street, the city is still one of the country's top family destinations. Kids can ogle sharks and penguins at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, watch white tigers and orangutans at the Audubon Zoo, board the Natchez steamboat for a scenic cruise on the Mississippi, or learn about the nearby wetlands on a swamp-boat tour. Experience the city's rich music heritage at Preservation Hall, where jazz legends can be heard jamming live, and at Mid-City Lanes Rock 'N' Bowl, which also has G-rated entertainment.
