Audubon Zoo

A close encounter with a lioness at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans goes viral.
The young male was sedated without incident an hour after he was spotted roaming free.
It was loud and busy, wet and deafening, but the music, the dancing, and the food were still amazing and mood-lifting.
We like animals. A lot. We like to visit them in zoos around the world. Since it's not always possible to leave the States
Take a free ferry ride on the Mississippi River. Stop and hear some live jazz musicians while snacking on some pralines or a King Cake. Hold a live alligator on a swamp tour.
