August 1 2020 | Family Travel Tips

While it's not exactly clear whether kids will be back to school or in the Zoom classroom this fall, field trips that allow for social distancing are important. You'll find New Orleans is the perfect classroom for just about any subject.

For science class, you can take your little ones into the Louisiana Swamp on either an airboat or a traditional swamp tour boat. Learn about the flora and fauna in Louisiana and get a lesson in Cajun history as well. On, you'll find coupons for companies like Honey Island Swamp Tours, New Orleans Airboat Tours, Cajun Pride Tours, Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours, Cajun Encounter Tours, Pearl River Eco Tours and Swamp Adventures.

For more history lessons, go back to the Great Steamboat Era on the Steamboat NATCHEZ. You'll learn about life and commerce back in the 1800s and a little bit about the importance of the port today. Or take Tour Tremé and learn about America's oldest African American neighborhood.

For home economics, your teens can learn how to cook the Louisiana way at New Orleans School of Cooking. This attraction receives great reviews and it'll cover snack time, too!

For music class, how about a Music of NOLA Tour from French Quarter Phantoms? Your kids will learn the ABCs of New Orleans music–from Armstrong to Zydeco.

For art, Mardi Gras World is a great place to watch artists at work and to learn how floats are made. It's also a lesson in New Orleans culture.

On, you’ll find valuable coupons that will make getting out of the house not only educational and fun but affordable. What a great math lesson!
