We know it can be hard to leave your pets behind even for a fun-filled family vacation. The good news: in New Orleans, everyone is welcome –even your furry, four-legged friends! Many businesses and restaurants (outside seating of course) around town welcome man’s best friend. Plus, we have plenty of parks for you to walk them. There are even a few places such as City Park, where you can let your pet off the leash to run free.

So when your planning your trip and packing your bags, don’t forget to pack Sparky’s bowl and a ball.

We’ve put together a list of our favorite pet-friendly places.
