Any family vacation to New Orleans with kids must include a visit to its famous and iconic French Quarter. And, while you may not think this historic neighborhood of restaurants, honky-tonks and bars is a particularly kid-friendly area, you'd be quite surprised. Touring the French Quarter gives your family a chance to learn important history as well as experience some of the best live music in the world.
I recommend staying at one of the many family-friendly hotels located in the French Quarter because the attractions are so close to one another that walking is the best option.
Here is my suggested itinerary for the perfect family vacation in New Orleans with kids.
