1 Suck on a crawfish head

You can't say you've done New Orleans without mastering the art of eating crawfish. Order a pound of boiled crawfish at Acme Oyster then get down to business.

2 See an albino alligator

The Aquarium has a 350,000 gallon tank teeming with sharks, tarpin, sea turtles, and sawfish - and a rare albino alligator that you have to see with your own eyes.

3 Dance with the band at Rock-N-Bowl

Almost every night a different live band plays at Rock-N-Bowl. Just don't drop a bowling ball on your toes while you swing your partner to Zydeco, R&B, or Rock.

4 Tour Longue Vue House and Gardens

A Colonial Revival Estate built by Sears and Roebuck heir Edith Stern, Longue Vue is a must see, and its gardens are a great place to pretend you're a Southern belle.

5 Down a Jacques-Imo's Café po boy

Famous for its fried roast beef po boys and alligator cheesecake, Joaquimo's is right next door to another New Orleans institution - see No. 21

6 Take the Zoo Cruise

The John James Audubon riverboat travels from the Aquarium to the Audubon Zoo along 7 miles of Mississippi river and New Orleans waterfront.
