Things to do

TCOB in the Downtown CBD, New Orleans style

Fancy some natural history? This neighborhood's got you covered _ both the massive Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium are right here, and families can get up close and personal with wildlife of all types. At the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, you'll find a selection of world-class works by artists from across the region. Once you've had your fill of museums, you can catch a concert at the Mercedez-Benz Superdome, a colossal stadium that's also the home venue for the New Orleans Saints NFL team.


Making tough decisions in the Big Easy

New Orleans is a thriving, cosmopolitan town, and the Downtown CBD is no exception _ the biggest problem you'll have will be choosing what to see. You'll find a wealth of shops and restaurants right outside the door of your Downtown CBD vacation rental, and the nearby Lafayette Square Conservancy hosts a free summer concert series in a postage-stamp-sized city park. You can enjoy plenty of festivals and street fairs throughout the year _ from the infamous Mardis Gras parade down to lesser-known events like the Creole Tomato Festival.
