How to Spend a Rainy Day in New Orleans

How to Spend a Rainy Day in New Orleans

Famously hot and humid in summer, New Orleans sees its fair share of rain year-round. However, nothing can dampen the city’s lively spirit, so pack an umbrella and soak up the extra dose of atmosphere that gray skies bring to the history-heavy town. Here’s how to make the most of a rainy day in the Big Easy.

  • New Orleans cuisine is decadent in any weather, so grab a bite on a food tour or stay inside for a Creole cooking class.
  • See the city while staying dry on the lower deck of a hop-on hop-off bus or on a city driving tour.
  • Come face-to-face with marine life at the Audubon Aquarium.
  • Take cover inside one of the city’s museums, such as the National WWII Museum or New Orleans Museum of Art.
  • Get artsy at Mardi Gras World or the Edgar Degas House.
  • Enjoy river views and Dixie tunes from the dining room of a Mississippi jazz cruise.
  • Bring an umbrella and get spooked on a cemetery or haunted history tour, made extra eerie by the rain.
