The Chicago O’Hare International (ORD) airport can be easily accessed by taking Interstate 90 as well as Interstate 94. Once there, you can expect a flight of approximately three hours to reach the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY).
Upon arrival in the historic city of New Orleans, Louisiana, both Interstates 10 and 610 will get you around this unique and historical region.
Overlooking Jackson Square is the famous Saint Louis Cathedral. You can attend morning mass every day of the week and it offers several services for guests on the weekend.
Another place of interest is the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas as well as the Audubon Zoo. Adjacent to the French Quarter, the aquarium has a 400,000-gallon display filled with rays and other exotic sea creatures.
The zoo is situated on 58 acres of land and is home to animals from all over the world, including Africa and Asia, housed in their natural habitat, which makes it a great place to take the kids on a sunny afternoon.
With a sub-tropical climate, there is a no bad time to visit New Orleans. In the summer, you can expect temperature in the 90s, and it only drops down to the 60s in the winter.
