The Roloff family from TLC’s hit show LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD trade the farm life for
The French Quarter during their visit to New Orleans, Show airs Monday March 16

NEW ORLEANS – March 12, 2009 – Tune in Monday, March 16 at 7:30PM Central as The Roloff’s from TLC’s LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD visit New Orleans where the fun—and of course a little family drama—unfolds.

As they traverse one of the country’s most walk-able cities, the family explores the new Audubon Insectarium, tries beignets at Café du Monde, rides a horse-drawn carriage through the French Quarter, dines at the world-famous Brennan’s restaurant—and learns what visitors have been discovering about New Orleans for years: that New Orleans is a great place for a family vacation.

“Our goal in hosting the Roloff’s in New Orleans was to show a national audience that a family vacation in New Orleans is not an oxymoron,” said Kelly Schulz, vice president of communications and public relations for the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau. “They traveled here during one of the hottest weeks of the summer last year and thanks to participating CVB members, still had a great time taking in the historic architecture, sights, sounds, flavors and cultural offerings that makes New Orleans such an authentic and educational destination for families.”

While in New Orleans, Amy, Jeremy, Zach, Molly and Jacob Roloff stayed at the Maison Dupuy Hotel and were hosted by the following CVB member attractions and hotspots:

  • The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas
  • The Audubon Insectarium
  • Brennan’s Restaurant
  • Café du Monde
  • The Court of Two Sisters
  • Mother’s Restaurant
  • Royal Carriages, Inc.

The Roloff family also enjoyed shopping, a streetcar ride, a visit to a palm reader, listening to jazz music at local clubs and touring Jackson Square and the St. Louis Cathedral.

Consistently recognized as one of the top five convention and visitor bureaus in the United States, The New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau is the driving force behind New Orleans' most important industry, tourism. Today the cultural riches, sensual indulgences and unparalleled service that define the New Orleans experience continue to flourish, as they have for centuries. The most celebrated and historic core of the city - including the French Quarter, Central Business District, Warehouse and Arts District, Magazine Street, the Faubourg Marigny and Garden District - are thriving.
