Superdome, New Orleans: 6 reviews and 10 photos

  Coming in from the Airport
by grandmaR
 
 

We saw the Superdome on the way in from the airport, and of course when we took the New Orleans tour, they mentioned it again. On their website, I thought that it looked like a giant hamburger all lit up at night. If I were a real sports fan, that probably would not have occurred to me.

They used to have tours of the Superdome but since 9-11 they no longer do that. Also our visit was BEFORE Hurricane Katrina made the Superdome infamous. After Katrina it was rebuilt and reopened in 2006. Currently scheduled are
