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.

Cocktail bar with views of the city lit up at night
Modeled after a 1940's artist's loft, this chic rooftop bar at The Pontchartrain Hotel is a local favorite. This intimate bar has both indoor and outdoor seating where you can sip their incredible cocktails and take in an incredible view of the city.
Public transport with views of the skyline
Skyline and river views from a beautiful urban park
This beautifully designed, 1.4 mile urban park on the banks of the Mississippi connects the French Quarter to the Bywater. This converted wharf offers great views of the city and is gorgeously landscaped. Walk through the park or just hang out, taking in the Mississippi River from one of their swinging benches.

Riverside path with a view of the skyline
This path is a walking, running and biking trail with beautiful views of the downtown skyline. If you walk a mile downriver (with the river to your right), you can stand beneath the Crescent City Connection bridge, which makes for a cool picture.
