In and Around New Orleans

In and Around New Orleans Picture of City

The Big Easy is a big place. There’s a lot to see in and around New Orleans. Even if you’ve lived here all your life, there’s still a lot to discover in Crescent City.

If you’re leaving the house, there’s a good bet that New Orleans Mom has your activity covered, from local shopping to restaurants to the events that everyone in New Orleans is talking about.

At New Orleans Mom, we have all the seasons covered, as well as every member of the family. Our team of more than 30 contributors is always looking for activities, events, and fun, like how to plan a unique birthday party for the kids in your life or find the perfect restaurant for your night out. 

Each year, we publish a comprehensive list of summer camps, keeping you informed about all of the best options in and around New Orleans for your kids. We’ve got an eye on the local schools, helping parents make sure they’re informed before enrolling. We’re even with you at the movie theater.

Our writers live in and around New Orleans, so we’ve got a lot of experience finding the best things about our wonderful city. We’ve seen the beautiful side of New Orleans during a time of tragedy. We’ve been to the bayous after a hurricane. We talk about ways to give back to your community

We know there’s a lot to see in New Orleans and it isn’t all downtown. That’s why we take you all over the Big Easy. From the Westbank to the Northshore, from Uptown to Downtown, we’ve got all of New Orleans covered.

We’ve all seen a child who receives a thoughtful, sometimes expensive gift, only to play with the box or packing materials instead. During the holiday season, many families receive packages filled with packing peanuts and other materials. Instead of throwing away...
I have never been one to make New Years resolutions. It was never that I believed in it or didn't; it's just that my new year feels as though it starts on April 16th when tax season comes to...
I think Pinterest is a little bit like therapy. I live vicariously through the beautiful pictures, stylish clothes and craft activities. I pretend that I have the time to go to those places, the money to afford those expensive...
It's crazy to think how fast Thanksgiving and Christmas came and went. Just like that, all the food (and wine) is gone, all the packages are opened and those "super awesome" new toys now just sit on the shelf....
It would be fair and accurate to say that I'm not a stylish person. Here's the evidence: My daily wardrobe decisions are based on what coordinates with the nursing tank top that happens to be clean I continue to...
We don't know about y'all, but Mardi Gras might just be our favorite holiday! King cake, parades, beads, another excuse to wear a costume, spears, ice cold beer in the crisp NOLA air, crawfish, revelry and marching bands ......

I don't quite remember when it was, but not long after Jane was born, I started a series of Pinterest boards with ideas for first birthday party themes. It felt a bit like planning a wedding; her first birthday seemed so...
Well, what do you know? Just like that another year has flown by, and it's already time to make another New Year's Resolution, or is it? Do you and your family follow the tradition of setting new goals for...
There's no shortage of family fun in New Orleans, especially at the holidays! People always say "there's just something about New York during the holidays," but we think that there's something about New Orleans, too! We are excited to share...
