Audubon Nature Institute has won several Best of New Orleans titles in a reader survey conducted by the publication Gambit weekly. The annual poll, which highlights some of the best things to do in New Orleans for locals and visitors alike, awarded titles to four Audubon Nature Institute attractions under the category of Local Life.
Audubon Park Golf Course was voted the best golf course in New Orleans. The 18-hole, par 62 course features a mix of lush Louisiana greenery (such as hundred year-old oak trees) and modern landscaping, including contoured Bermuda fairways and manicured TifEagle greens.
The best local charity event title went to Zoo-To-Do, which is held in the beginning of May every year. The event, which benefits Audubon Zoo, features live entertainment as well as cocktails and food from more than 70 New Orleans restaurants.
