Passing through one night this summer. We have points so is it odd to stay at the W FQ with kiddos? Their website doesn't mention children when you reserve your room. It only says it is meant for 2 adults.

Staying at the Sheraton instead. Anyone recommend any restaurants near the Sheraton on Canal? Looking for authentic New Orleans food, okay for kids but not dumpy.

Not on Canal. Go either side, Quarter or CBD.

Palace Cafe would be the only nice place I can think of on Canal itself.

Wouldn't that be expensive with kids? One of the casual restaurants in the Riverwalk might be better, or one in the Quarter.

New Orleans is not a very kid friendly city, but there are some things. On Canal St. there is the Insectarium and Aquarium, on Julia St. there is the Children's Museum, and Uptown is the Zoo. Audubon Park and City Park are nice. We are somewhat numb to it here, but if you're rather conservative, you may want to completely avoid Bourbon St. with the kiddos. I used to work at Frank's Restaurant on Decatur during college. For a good mix of New Orleans and Italian, they have excellent food. Tell Frank, Jack, and Annie I said hi! :-)

Check out "Macaroni Kid" for things to do with kids.

Yeah, I understand the whole not kid friendly thing. But, we are just passing through for one day, and we are doing the Aquarium. I can't imagine that place was geared just towards adults.

New Orleans is as kid friendly as any other city outside of Orlando. You shouldn't have any issues.

Its just the first 5-6 blocks of bourbon that are heavily adult oriented and that's an easy stretch to avoid.

What streets cordon off this "first 5-6 blocks of bourbon"?
