  • Palm Tree Playground
    Palm Tree Playground owners Eric and Heather Hays spent the first four years of their children's lives moving around the country. In spots where the weather wasn't great for playing outside, they explored the local indoor playgrounds. Inspired by the cool places they visited, the family founded Palm Tree Playground once they settled down in New Orleans. Their playground incorporates the best features of the many playgrounds they visited including small play equipment for babies and toddler, and a big-kids soft-play structure with spiral slides and a contained ball arena. An attached surf-and-snack shack sells morsels and soft drinks, but families can bring their own lunches and enjoy them in the cafeteria too.

  • Audubon Zoo
    Do you enjoy the wonders of nature? If so, you'll adore the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, LA. In addition to a diverse wildlife that focus on different continents (like the African Savanna and Asian Domain), there's an aviary for bird fans and the Dinosaur Adventure for dino lovers. And if your legs get tired, you can always jump aboard the Swamp Train for a picturesque trip of the Zoo. You’ll never go hungry here either since there are more than ten concession stands or cafés. Plus, during the warmer months, kids can hang out at the 'Cool Zoo' splash park as a fun way to escape the heat. Whether you come for a day or get a membership with yearlong park privilege (and special discounts), the Audubon Zoo is the perfect place for family fun.

  • Tom Amoss Racing Stables
    At Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, home to horse racing since 1872, visitors wager on an extensive calendar of live races, or year-round simulcasts of other Louisiana tracks. Guidance from the program and tip sheet steer bets toward horses with impressive histories or names such as "Guaranteed Winner." Grandstand entry is free to all comers, letting customers sit outdoors beneath the warm sun and measure equine speed in relation to sips of beer ($3?$5) and bites of hot dogs ($4) from track concession stands. Alternatively, visitors can retire to the upscale clubhouse for more gourmet fare (most meals are around $9.95) while minding the strictly enforced dress code, which prohibits shorts, T-shirts, sandals, and evening gowns made out of Seabiscuit movie posters. Though not included with today?s Groupon, more than 600 new slot machines, ranging from penny slots to $1-per-game machines, entertain visitors while the thoroughbreds gear up for their next gallop.
