i'm not sure!!! i do know a good bit of NO seems to be back up and running though- around the french quarters/etc. Colin and I went to NO the last time we went to Mobile,Al to see his family (it's only a few hours to get there from Mobile so we made a day out of it) it was soo neat! We didn't go to the aquarium. (i'm not sure if it's up and running but i'm sure you could check online?) definitely stop by Cafe du Monde and get some beignets and cafe o lait though!!!!! They're awesome
It's fun too- it's out in a somewhat open area (under a tent- there are pigeons everywhere and you have to wait for a seat- but the atmosphere is soo fun!!! I loved it- also, there's little open markets down there with vendors that sell neat things as well (i was able to find some little wooden bobble head turtles that i collect at one!
) Also- a lot of the little shops are back to normal as well! Neworleanians are sooo resiliant- i really admire how much they've done in such a short amount of time to try and rebuild. There is still without a doubt a ton of devestation all around- but for each bit of devistation you see- it seems like people are working to rebuild something. I bet ya'll will have fun on the train too!!!!! I went on a train ride a few years back to chicago from memphis. It was awesome!!!! Such a fun, different way to get around!
i looked up this link online- looks like the aquarium/zoo is openhttp://www.auduboninstitute.org/site/PageServer
