Butterfly Riverview Park
This is another beautiful park along the river. I will lump this in with the Tree of life, because if you're driving you should hit both of these spots. They Fly is the best for bringing a nice picnic, or some awesome crawfish to enjoy along the Mississippi while watching the ships pass by. The…
This riverfront spot is right behind the Audubon Zoo. Bring some po-boys or crawfish and enjoy a picnic lunch on the river watching the barges float by on the Mighty Mississippi.

“Stroll through the 8 block corridor of the Freret Street district for cocktails (Cure and others), a music club, some shops, and, above all, but it is mostly known for its many places to dine or just get a quick bite to eat.
