The Leisurely Side of New Orleans

Bayou St. John, New Orleans

Bayou St. John.

Visitors to New Orleans come here to celebrate Mardi Gras with outrageous parades and cocktails in the street. They come to listen to some of the finest musicians alive play in dark, intimate bars. They come here to feast on po-boys, beignets, and gumbo, to admire the architecture, to experience the culture.

Many people don’t think about experiencing New Orleans from the water. They should. It’s a wonderful way to see the city from a different perspective.

Bayou St. John meanders past many New Orleans attractions. To paddle the bayou is to experience the area the way some of the first people did; it is easier to approach the city from the Gulf of Mexico through Lake Pontchartrain and Bayou St. John than to fight the current of the Mississippi River. Plus it’s fun.

Kayak tours of the bayou lead past the vast and serene City Park, the Spanish Custom House, and the Pilot House. Paddlers will float past the New Orleans Museum of Art and St. Louis Cemetery #3, with it’s spectacular above-ground tombs. In addition to New Orleans landmarks, kayaking along Bayou St. John provides excellent viewings of wildlife: herons, pelicans, and other water fowl being most predominant.

Mardi Gras may be in full swing, but it’s still possible to find serenity in New Orleans. Check in to a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast and look into kayak tours. They’re a wonderful way to round out any New Orleans vacation.
