Things to Do with Kids on Magazine Street

Things to Do with Kids on Magazine Street

While Magazine Street is a great place for adults to shop and dine, the street has plenty of things to do with kids. Colorful houses, beautiful trees, and eye-catching art will keep them entertained, but these spots on Magazine are perfect options for an outing with the kids in New Orleans. Visit our world class zoo, pick out some toys, shop for clothes, enjoy a sweet treat, watch artisans at work, and more.
