The Fly

Mississippi-front grassy area with beautiful sunsets

Tucked between Audubon Zoo and the Mississippi, this greenspace is a local favorite for tossing a frisbee, having a crawfish boil, or simply just hanging out. It is one of the best places in the city for a sunset so it can get a bit crowded at night or when the weather is nice. If you want to do it right, stop at New Orleans Original Daiquiris at the corner of St. Charles Avenue and Carrollton Street for a the best way to stay cool while you are at The Fly.
