We’re enjoying the summer sun and summer activities!
July is a very active month in New Orleans. Enjoy the summer sun (and rain) getting involved in any of these events.
These are things to do in New Orleans this July:
1. Swamp After Dark tour
Discover the mystique of NOLA’s swamp and bayous in the dark. These night tours are not available year-round, so the summer is your best opportunity to experience one first-hand. Tours are offered by different organizers and last about one or two hours. Watch out for alligators, snakes, turtles and other nocturnal animals.
2. Audubon Zoo
Where: 📍6500 Magazine Street
One of our favorite places to visit during the summer. If you have small children, we’re sure they’ll love it too. Get to know the region’s animals and cool off at their Cool Zoo water park. There is also an aquarium and insectarium for a whole day full of fun!
3. 3 Doors Down Concert
When: 🗓 July 22
Where: 📍Champions Square Lasalle St
We’re ready, are you? Buy your tickets and listen to the rock American band 3 Doors Down completely live. They will be celebrating their 20th Anniversary with a tour called The Better Life.
4. Lindsey Stirling Concert
When: 🗓July 26
Where: 📍 Saenger Theatre 1111 Canal St
Violin lovers! The world-famous violinist Lindsey Stirling will be live at the end of July, doing a rescheduled concert from her Artemis Tour. Get your tickets ASAP.
5. Monster Jam
An adrenaline rush for the whole family. Monster trucks will put on a show as fantastic as you can imagine. They will drive you crazy as they compete with each other in freestyle stunts and races.
When: 🗓 July 31
Where: 📍Mercedes-Benz Superdome Sugar Bowl Drive
6. Satchmo Summer Fest
