May 1 2021 | Family Travel Tips

Whether your kids are back to school full time or still in the Zoom classroom this spring, 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, and Cajun Encounter Tours.

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. 

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 visit to the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Old U.S. Mint in French Quarter? Inside, you'll find a fabulous jazz museum that even houses Louis Armstrong's first cornet!

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!
