The Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, Louisiana brings many memories to my mind from the past ten years. Why the past ten years? That’s because we moved down to South Louisiana, Baton Rouge ten years ago. Since then, we have made the short trip to the Audubon Zoo more times than I can count. While this zoo is great for children and families, singles or those without kids will have a wonderful time as well. We went as a young couple for many years before our children arrived.

The zoo will have the spring Easter Egg Hunt kickoff, Eggstravaganza to begin the season, then introduce several new animals and buildings through the season. There will be a new sea lion and seal pool, new animals and a new look at the Australia Adventure exhibit, and new interactive exhibits, courtesy of John Deere.

The Woodland Park Zoo is known for its natural looking and enjoyable exhibits. In fact the zoo has won many prestigious awards for its exhibits. There is so much to do and see here at the zoo that this can easily be a whole day adventure for any family. In fact that is what I would recommended is that you take a whole day and while you are there why not take a stroll next door to the beautiful Rose Garden. This is a free side trip as it doesn’t cost anything to view the roses but it is a wonderful experience and it goes well with the Woodland Park Zoo.

So as you can see, there are plenty of reasons to go to town and book a room so you can enjoy it for more than one day. London has more than enough to offer everyone when it comes to getting away from it all for a day or two.
