If you feel the need to sit on the grass in the shade of an enormous live oak tree during your stay in a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast, head to Audubon Park. Bring a picnic and a blanket, and spend a leisurely afternoon feasting and watching people.
Audubon Park is large. It sits across from both Loyola and Tulane Universities, stretching from St. Charles Avenue to the Mississippi River. If you are a jogger, this is the place to run. A few laps around the 1.75 mile paved (but traffic-free) road that circles the lagoon and golf course will stimulate a healthy appetite for the first meal of the day, served at your Bed and Breakfast New Orleans.
