Summer in New Orleans is HOT and muggy! It’s so muggy it will take your breath away. Literally! It’s also one of my favorite times of year – the kids are out of school (and driving us crazy), our schedules are a little more relaxed, lazy days at the pool, summer vacations, and, of course, SNOBALLS!

Can we all agree that snowballs are THE best thing about summer in New Orleans?

We may not have snowballs here at Pint-Sized NOLA, but we think our Guide To Summer In New Orleans With Kids is the next best thing!

In our guide, you will find summer camps, summer activities, date night ideas, places to cool off around town, and SO MUCH MORE!

Sit back, sip a summer cocktail, and check out the only guide to Summer In New Orleans with kids you will ever need.
