Cure for Cabin Fever: Indoor Family Fun on Both Shores
Winter in South Louisiana can be a mixed bag. One day you might be in flip flops, the next you’re prepping people, pipes, and pets for a frost warning! For those chilly days — or any given rainy day — when your crew is getting stir crazy, it’s nice to have plenty of options. Luckily, we do! While the movies are always a fun possibility, if you prefer to let the kiddos explore, create, and/or burn off some energy in a comfortable, climate-controlled environment, here are some great choices in New Orleans and on the Northshore. NEW ORLEANS Adventure Quest Laser Tag (Elmwood) This family fun center is jam-packed full of cool activities, like mini-golf, an arcade, bumper cars, a 6,000-square-foot laser-tag arena, plus their 5,000-square-foot, two-level Adventure Maze, and Pharaoh’s Revenge Escape Room. They also have party rooms for birthday parties and special events, and a snack bar that includes pizza, salads, tons of other snacks, and even adult beverages. http://www.lasertagnola.com/ Audubon Aquarium of the Americas (French Quarter) Perched on the Mississippi River adjacent to the French Quarter, the aquarium is an excellent escape to another world.

I find it very reliable, dependable, and even more advantageous than Yellow P! (In fact, I even was able to cancel Yellow P!) Been a customer for almost the whole 20 years! Am always happy to “go the extra mile” for KD and its public events. The magazine, the all-encompassing “infomercial” for Children’s entities, covers a lot of ground. Geography-wise ….and material-wise. So very glad to “be a part!’ – Uncle Wayne- Porta Puppet Players
Use your publication for party ideas, cakes, and summer activities for my son. It’s a valuable and informative resource that really fills a void for children’s activities. I tell everyone I know about it. – Casey L.
Since my pregnancy I used it a lot to find doctors, 4d ultrasound places and after that I have been using it to find children’s clothing stores, photography and much more. Almost every advertisement in the magazine is helpful for me and actually I always use it online because is more convenient. I think it is a very interesting magazine especially the kid’s activities the magazine advertises are awesome. I hope you are always around to keep helping parents like me. – Daniella O.
