Mississippi River Boat Rides
Natchez Steamboat © David Paul Ohmer
Set on the banks of the Mississippi River, New Orleans is a great place to take kids for a boat ride. The Natchez steamboat traverses this great river and passes many of the city's historical sites, while the John James Audubon ferries passengers between the Aquarium of the Americas and the Audubon Zoo. There are also a number of Louisiana swamp tours which kids would love.
Address: Many boats dock near the foot of Canal Street
