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.
