Virtual Family Activities in Louisiana

June 9th, 2020 by

Summer is fast approaching and everybody is making their plans. Some folks are venturing out of the house for a road trip, and some are taking it easy at home this season. As the saying goes, “different strokes for different folks.” No matter how you spend your summer, you can always bring Louisiana into your home with available virtual tours featuring unique sights and sounds of the Bayou State. Your friends at Hebert’s Town and Country Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Shreveport would like to share a list of virtual tours of some of Louisiana’s famous summer stops.


Audubon Aquarium of the Americas Virtual Tour: For the whole family, bring a fascinating and educational aquarium into your home. The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas provides a spectacular virtual marine environment! Experience a fish-eye view of the underwater-themed facility and the awesome ocean environments of the Great Maya Reef and the Gulf of Mexico in these virtual exhibits.


Lafayette Cemetery No. 1: Take a stroll through New Orleans’ necropolises and experience NOLA’s exquisite past and visit unique cemetery architecture found among the above-ground tombs, with a virtual tour of the famous Lafayette Cemetery No. 1. The city’s oldest city-operated cemetery was established in 1832 and is the nondenominational, non-segregated final resting place for many prominent New Orleanians. There are about 1,100 family tombs and more than 7,000 people buried in a single city block at Lafayette Cemetery No. 1.


New Orleans City Park: Known as New Orleans’ “crown jewel,” New Orleans City Park is a three-square-mile urban park, making it among one of the largest in the nation. On the virtual tour, you will get to see up-close the attractive New Orleans Botanical Gardens, NOLA’s Besthoff Sculpture Garden, and City Park’s grove of massive live oak trees. You’ll also have the opportunity to tour the New Orleans Museum of Art, the city’s oldest and most prominent fine arts institution, home to nearly 40,000 works of art and artifacts. There is a load of fun places to view in the New Orleans City Park virtual tour. 

Going out on the road or staying close to home, it’s time to have fun and relax. Make your summer enjoyable and exciting for the family by taking these virtual tours. We hope this fun list helps in making your summer a good one.  If you need to start your summer fresh in a new vehicle, don’t hesitate to contact Hebert’s Town and Country CDJR in Shreveport and let us assist with your vehicle needs.
