New Orleans travel tips

1) Feel like a mid-century noble riding a carriage through the French Quarter in New Orleans

When you visit the French Quarter in New Orleans, consider a horse carriage as an authentic way to explore this area. Moreover, the Jackson Square, Napoleon House, and St. Louis Cathedral are stunning, but the walk may be exhausting because of cobblestones.

2) Avoid taking photos with the “street entertainers” in New Orleans

You may come across the “street entertainers” on the popular streets of New Orleans. Try not to take a photo of or with any of them; they will expect and ask for a tip.

3) Admire New Orleans from the roof at the Hot Tin Rooftop Bar

Observe the stunning views of New Orleans at the Hot Tin Rooftop Bar at 2031 St Charles Avenue. Prices for cocktails (like a Dream Park cocktail) start from $8, which is a great value for money for such a great view.
