Arabi, Louisiana is a resilient community. It is self-reliant. It is productive. Originally, it was created because the slaughterhouses were not allowed inside New Orleans city limits. It was considered a health hazard. However, it then became a gambling community that was thought to be dangerous. In 1952, armed soldiers went in and closed down all the gambling establishments. It was a fight, but the community banded together to clean up its home. Then when Katrina hit, Arabi was twenty feet underwater. Nothing was thought to survive. Yet, when the water receded, there were some historic buildings left standing. 

The River House is one such building. It is a three-bedroom home that has been declared a historic site. You can often find live venues that will allow you and your pup to enjoy some authentic jazz music and classic Cajun fare. The food is always spicy and the music is always jumping. You can rent the rooms, but they are often booked a year in advance!

Patricia Park is a more modern addition. It is a great place to walk your dog while the kids play. The locals often throw together impromptu baseball games. Please keep your dog on the leash and make sure you visit the historic, unnamed building on-site.

    A ride on the Algiers Ferry is a great start for any adventure. You and your dog can catch a ride on the lower deck and head on over to Algiers Point. Your dog will probably be caught off guard by the ground moving under them, but once they get the hang of it, they will love the new smells! Once you get to Algiers Point, there is a small pub that is dog-friendly if you want to get a drink while you wait for the ferry to depart again. You will need a leash. Dogs travel for free but people pay a dollar.
