How to get around in New Orleans?

As a major metropolitan city, New Orleans has more than enough options for getting around town. From the historic streetcars to being on foot, you can explore the sights, culinary adventures, and more with ease.

Taxis

Taxicabs in New Orleans are available throughout the city centre. The initial meter fee is $3.50 USD, and then each additional 1/8 mile is charged at $0.30 USD.

Bus and Streetcar

RTA operates in the city centre and outskirts of New Orleans. Purchase a 1-day Jazzy Pass for $3 USD or a 3-day Pass for $9 USD per person and get unlimited travel on all buses and streetcars downtown. In the downtown area, most of your travel will be on the streetcars, but around the borders of the city centre, you will need to take the bus lines. You can text your stop ID on the RTA mobile app and they will respond with the next pick-up time and bus line near you.

Ride Share

New Orleans offers Uber and Lyft ride sharing services. These are private car services that you must book in advance. The fare depends on the time of the day, service selected, and the number of people you want to transport in the vehicle.

Bike

New Orleans is a walkable city, but also very bike-friendly. In the French Quarter, you can get around much easier with a bike than in a motored vehicle. Several companies rent bikes, including American Bicycle Rental Company & Free Wheelin’ Bike Tours, Bicycle Michael’s, and Bike Easy. The fares for rentals vary depending on which area of town you are in and the number of days or hours you rent.

Car Rentals

Car rentals help you get to the areas outside of the CBD and French Quarter. However, on-street parking meters in the Warehouse District, Marigny, French Quarter, and CBD average $3 USD per hour. Therefore, using a vehicle can become costly.


What are the visa and passport requirements when flying to New Orleans?

Canadian citizens can enter the U.S. through the Visa Waiver Program, which lets them visit for 90 days or less without requiring a travel visa. A passport is required, and travellers must have an Electronic System for Travel Authorization approval. For foreign nationals, please check the U.S. Department of State website.

Things to do and places of interest in New Orleans

The city of New Orleans is one of those cities that never seem to rest. Throughout the year, there are events, festivals, and plenty of attractions. La Nouvelle-Orleans was established in 1718 and it still holds true to many of its French roots. While known as New Orleans today, it is home to over 300,000 people and attractions to keep everyone busy year-round.

  • Festivals are big in New Orleans. Right through the year, you have culinary, music, and multicultural festivals. Try the Oak Street Po-Boy Fest or the New Orleans Seafood Festival if you are a foodie. For music, you have the French Quarter Festival and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. To experience New Orleans culture, visit on Bastille Day or in time for Louisiana’s own Oktoberfest.
  • The French Quarter takes you back to a simpler time. The buildings have been expertly preserved, and within the French Quarter you have restaurants, hotels, and numerous attractions. While here, visit the New Orleans Opera or catch a colourful production at one of the theatres. The museums of the French Quarter are also worth visiting, especially The 1850 House, the American Italian Culture Center, Amistad Research Center, and The Backstreet Cultural Museum.
  • Explore the history and heritage of New Orleans. Neighbourhoods here each have historic significance to the city, like The Garden District, the Warehouse District, and even Faubourg Marigny and Bywater. Some of the historic buildings to stroll by or tour within include the Basin St. Station, The Cabildo, and Gallier House.
  • If you are here for Mardi Gras, catch one of the many colourful and vibrant parades or go to a carnival club. If you are not here for the big day, The Backstreet Cultural Museum celebrates Mardi Gras year-round and so does Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World.

Tips and tricks for visiting New Orleans

New Orleans is a vibrant, safe city for the most part. However, when you are a new visitor, there are a few items to keep in mind.

Get to know the language

One thing that might throw you off is the way to pronounce names of areas while you are in New Orleans. Locals take offense when you get their language wrong. For example, “New Orleans is pronounced as “Naw-lins.

Know the drinks

To truly experience the night life of New Orleans, you need to know the signature drinks on Bourbon Street. Try yourself at a Hand Grenade or Crawdad Bloody Mary – both local favourites. You can also get the official Mardi Gras drink, known as the Ojen.

Avoid certain areas after dark

The city sees a heavy tourist count per year; therefore, they do what they can to keep it safe. However, there are some areas you must try to avoid during the late hours, such as the districts outside of city centre.

The challenge of driving

From the cost of parking to the difficulty of finding parking spots, it is better to take a cab or use public transportation than try to navigate New Orleans in a car. Parking meters are marked, so if you do park there, do not skip the meter fare – or your vehicle will be towed.
