Get to know the authentic and diverse New Orleans neighborhoods from Mid-City to the Garden District and beyond.  Make your way to New Orleans City Park, where you’ll stop for a sweet treat.  Serving as New Orleans' largest outdoor attraction since 1854, City Park is one of the oldest parks in the country. With its picturesque moss draped oak trees, this 1,300-acre green space brings in millions of visitors each year.  Another stop will be to visit one of our historic cemeteries to learn about our above ground burial system.
