New Orleans can be loud. We are loud people, there is music always blasting from somewhere, and sounds of trains and cars are everywhere. In a world full of noise, here are some places to be quiet in New Orleans.
Our list includes:
- The Singing Oak in City Park – the windchimes and peacefulness in City Park will help you escape for a moment
- Bayou Segnette State Park – bask in some nature while enjoying the silence
- New Orleans Public Library – enough said.
- New Orleans Museum of Art – the one rule we all seem to abide by in life is being quiet in an art museum
- The Fly – while this won’t always be serene, go during the week while everyone is at work & school
- Steamboat Houses – these gorgeous homes overlook the levee in the Holy Cross neighborhood. Great city views and no tourists
- Bayou St. John Music Tree – sit on the bank of the bayou, close your eyes, and tune out the rest of the world
- Lake Terrace Park – in the less-traveled section of the lakeshore, you will be able to enjoy staring at the water without a ton of people
- Lafreniere Park – while this park can bustle with people jogging, skating, and feeding ducks; it’s typically very hushed and civilized
- Bucktown Marsh Boardwalk – if you’re looking for a stilled walk, this is nature and peace all in one
- Longue Vue Gardens – you won’t find anyone being boisterous here!
- Lower Coast Algiers – this is worth a drive to see some grand homes and no other cars in sight!
- Lakefront Airport – full of history and not full of people!
- Chua Bo De Buddhist Temple – enough said.
- Audubon Louisiana Nature Center – 86 acres of nature right in the city
