10 Best iPhone Apps for Toddlers and Kids

Back in the day, parents handed fussy toddlers their keys, a teething toy or maybe a rattle. Now, we hand over the iPhone. The most common question asked by parents who look for travel advice isn’t about what highway to travel or even about kid-friendly luggage. It’s about iPhone apps. So, we decided to do some research and let our fingers do the downloading as we tried out some of the top contenders and a few more obscure apps. Here are our recommendations for the apps worth downloading. Let the happy road trips begin!


Family-Friendly Mardi Gras in Houma, Louisiana

Houma, Louisiana is really what Mardi Gras is all about. Not the nudity and public intoxication of modern New Orleans, although that certainly has a place in another type of vacation. Instead, it’s several generations of families enjoying the parades, food and party — together.

On the top of a hill, smack-dab in the middle of suburban sprawl sits the same restaurant on the same spot it claimed over fifty years ago. If you think, “this can’t possibly be right,” take faith and keep driving. You’ll see a sign for The Lookout Bar and Grill around the next bend.
