    Audubon Zoo Cruise from the Quarter

    by Jmill42 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A paddleboat cruise of the Mississippi river can take you to Audubon Zoo from the Aquarium/IMAX. The "Must-see" part of this tip is not the cruise, although the boats are pretty cool themselves, but it is the Audubon Zoo at the end that is! It is the best way to get from the Quarter to the zoo without having to drive.

    The Zoo has white tigers, orangutans and reptiles among other things. It is made up of various enclosed areas like the Asian Domain, the World of Primates and even the Louisiana Swamp (a good alternative if you don't want to do a Swamp Tour). For more info, check the website below.

    Some of the areas are themed, like the Louisiana swamp area,Thai section and central american section I'm not extremely fond of animals but I liked the zoo. It also features the highest point in New orleans which is a laughable mound of dirt. (New Orleans is under sea level)They now have a Kimodo dragon display.

    Audubon Zoological Gardens
    The verdant Audubon Zoo is home to more than 1,500 species from around the globe, including rare white alligators, Malayan sun bears and the world's largest lizard, the Komodo dragon.

    Although the zoo caters mainly to children, you're never too old to become mesmerized by the majestic white tigers, showy sea lions and human-mannered gorillas.

    Exhibits
    Elaborate permanent exhibitions add to the zoo's international feel and visitor-friendly layout, from the Louisiana Swamp exhibit's muggy boardwalk to the Mayan Ruins and archeological dig site in the Jaguar Jungle.

    The Audobon Zoo is a good way to spend an afternoon. Ride the cable car to the Zoo stop (just ask the conductor to point this stop out), hop off and enjoy the animals

    Picturesque walk in the zoo

    For those who cannot get out to see the real swamp the Audubon Zoo has a wonderful exhibit with alligators, bears, and real live cajun house boats.

    The Audubon Zoo is a wonderful place with acres of park and unique animals. I often go to the park just to walk my dog or sit and watch other people jog.
