Big Easy brochure boasts kids' stuff

NEW ORLEANS--The Crescent City is a city for adults, right? Wrong. New Orleans and kids go hand in hand. Just ask anyone who has ordered the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau's "99 Things for Kids" brochure.

There has in fact been a high number of national and international inquiries for the booklet, according to the bureau. According to a Travel Industry Association report, the share of vacationers who travel with their children increased from 45% to 55% nationally between 1992 and 1996.

The free brochure, one of NOMCVB's newest and most popular, provides a to-do list for kids, including descriptions of a variety of New Orleans activities, from sports to museums to events, enough activity to fill any family's days and nights.
