Attractions & Art
When most people think of New Orleans, they think mostly about the French Quarter, which is most definitely unique with it's magnificent 17th Century architecture and history of being one of the oldest city in the US, however New Orleans
has so much more to offer sometimes just steps off the "beaten path"!
World class Museums like the newly expanded National World War II Museum, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Contemporary Arts Museum, Confederate Museum, as well as a world-class Zoo and Aquarium in Audobon Park or
The Insectarium, the only museum/exhibit of it's kind in the world, on the Canal Street side of the French Quarter.

Who Dat! Watch a Saints game at the Superdome nearby. Maybe some Gaming at Harrah's, only a few blocks away.
Art Galleries thoughout both in the French Quarter, like Dutch Alley an artist's co-operative where artists live & work, or the many Art Galleries in the Warehouse/Arts District, only a few short blocks from The Green House Inn.
Into history? The Plantations all along River Road north of New Orleans, are only about an hour from the Inn or hop
on the 100 year old Natchez Paddle Steamboat for a ride up the Mississippi from foot of the French Quarter.
Feeling adventurous? See "gators" in their natural habitat, again only about 35 minutes from New Orleans,
maybe a Voodoo, Ghost, Haunted Places or tour of New Orleans unique cemetaries or see where
the famous Mardi Gras floats are built, is more to your liking.
The interesting sights of New Orleans and it's surrounding area are endless and it's all easily accessible from
The Green House Inn. Be sure to visit the Tourism Office at 2020 St. Charles Avenue where the staff is
knowledgeable and the free brochures are plentiful.
