With interesting aquatic exhibits and educational displays of marine life, the Aquarium of the Americas is a great place to cool off in steamy New Orleans. The kids will enjoy it, too. Single admission tickets can by pricey. Consider the Audubon Experience Package, which offers admission to the Aquarium, Audobon Zoo, IMAX® Theatre and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Our recommendation is based on reviews from friends.
