A drive of five and half hours from Houston takes you to French quarters,Gumbo,Jambalaya and blackened catfish.
We being mix of vegetarians and non vegetarians got our own choices and trip turned to be exploring a new territory.
I tend to do brief home work before touching new soil and that took me to a breakfast place 'Cafe du monde'.Taking a street car and a day pass saves your day and hitting the 'arch' of Mississipi' is on our books.On the cafe a serving of coffee with famous 'beignets'(fried pastry coated with powdered sugar) starts your day.

Going to a river side and not touching the waters is something I couldn't avoid so a ferry from Canal point touching Algiers point is a must.The ferry costs nothing and takes you around to give you a skyline of the city.
I would suggest to do go to the 'Audobon Insectarium' right in the downtown next to Shop on The Canals.It great fun to go and enjoy the world of butterflies and insects with your little ones.
