The Tree of Life definitely lives up to its name; it’s an impressive sight.
It’s a welcoming tree, too. It was so nice to be in the shade on such a hot day. And, many of the tree’s branches are low enough to prompt some silly tourist photos.
Unless you’re an avid hiker, I would recommend NOT walking from the French Quarter to this tree. It took hours and we were exhausted by the time we arrived! (Take the tram out to the park instead — it’s a really cheap ticket.)
