New Orleans travel tips

Best time to visit New Orleans

To enjoy the events, celebrations and cool weather, the best time to visit New Orleans is between February – May. This is also the peak tourist season and hotel prices tend to spike. You may have to book your accommodation several months in advance if you are visiting during the festival week. To avoid the Mardi Gras mania, plan your visit between December – January, when the city is relatively quiet and hotel prices are reasonable. If you don’t mind the humidity and temperatures as high as 33 degrees Celsius, plan your visit in the summer months from June – August, and get excellent bargains on hotel rates.

Getting around New Orleans

New Orleans neighbourhoods are quite compact, and can be easily explored on foot. To cover longer distances, hop on to the famous streetcars or buses operated by the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA). A one-way fare is $1.25 USD, and a 1-Day Jazzy Pass for $3.00 USD allows you unlimited rides for 24 hours. Taxis are easily available so call one if you are exploring the city at night, or find yourself in an unfamiliar area after dark. The city streets are narrow, and one-way routes can be confusing, so if possible, avoid driving and stick to public transport or taxis to get around in New Orleans.
