For some reason I have always wanted to visit Algiers, just across the Mississippi from downtown New Orleans. As senior citizens, my wife and I rode it for 40 cents each way (what a deal!!). Just rode over and back which takes about 10 minutes...More

This old boat has seen better days, but when a friend and I wanted a quieter night's stay near The French Quarter, this was the perfect way to get over to the Algiers residential area of the city. The next day we took the ferry...More

Algiers in an adorable town. It was quick and easy (and cheap) to get to by ferry, though be sure to have exact ferry fare (coming and going), as no change is given. Unfortunately, the day we traveled, several businesses were closed (Sunday of President's...More

Canal Street is one of the main streets in N.O. The trolley is a great way to go the whole distance up and down it to access stores, theaters, the cemeteries on one end and the rivrerbank, casino and Riverwalk shops on the other end.

Save the Taxi and Uber cost and the amount of time you will drive and avoid all the insane parking fee's. $2 gets you to Algiers where you can get a drink at some of the oldest bars and pubs in New Orleans right there...More

If you want a really good perspective on the Mississippi River, take this ferry trip across the river to Algiers and back. You will learn how strong and wild that water is.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
