Southern Louisiana RV Trip!

Oklahoma City RV

Many Oklahoma RV owners will be thinking about heading south soon. Some will go for an extended period, others for a respite from the cold temperatures for a week or so. If you’ve never considered New Orleans as an RV destination, we can understand why. The city after all, does have a hard partying reputation. But beyond Bourbon Street, Southern Louisiana can be an a very RV friendly area with lots of things to see and do. At Leisure Time RV, we thought we would put together a list of some of the more “family friendly” things to do in the Crescent City.

The National World War II Museum – This relatively new attraction opened in 2000. It not only has vehicles and exhibits from the World War II era, but it also has The Stage Door Canteen. The Canteen schedules live shows and offers dining. World War II veterans are admitted free.

The Audubon Zoo – This is one of the best zoos in the country, covering almost 60 acres and housing some 2,000 animals. The zoo has themed areas like the Louisiana Swamp and Jaguar Jungle. Here you will be witness to a rare white tiger and even white alligators.

The Aquarium of the Americas – The Aquarium is part of the Audubon Nature Institute along with the zoo. Feed the penguins, learn about the Gulf fishing industry, and get close to animals from the Amazon region.

The French Market – An experience for the senses, the French Market is filled with interesting sights, sounds, and smells. Here you’ll find great food and shops that offer the unusual. The French Market is a definite stop along the Mississippi River.

Riverwalk – Riverwalk offers diining and shopping and opportunities to take a river cruise or just watch boat traffic on the Mississippi. You can also see the nine-panel Holocaust Memorial. When the panels are viewed a certain way, you can see a Star of David.

Above Ground Cemeteries – Since much of New Orleans is at or below sea level, above ground cemeteries have become a tourist attraction. Many of these cemeteries have a very long history and many provide guided tours. They are particularly popular as Halloween approaches.

Many Oklahoma City motor homes will be heading south soon, and if yours is one of them, consider southern Louisiana as a stop. Before heading out, remember Leisure Time RV for all of your parts and accessories.
