New Orleans travel tips

1) Take a Mississippi River jazz cruise at the famous Steamboat Natchez in New Orleans

Pay around $48 to spend the amazing evening at the Steamboat Natchez steamboat in New Orleans. Admiring the city from the water can be better when you hear jazz music, have dinner at the buffet selection, and listen to the interesting stories about the city from locals.

2) Watch a concert at the Tipitina's in New Orleans for free in summer or for a few dollars any time

Go to 501 Napoleon Avenue in New Orleans to listen to local bands at the Tipitina's. Tickets usually cost a few bucks here; if you visit New Orleans in summer, you can even watch the concert for free at “Free Music Fridays.” The nearby 45 Tchoup bar is a must for a pre-concert drink.

3) Use the bus in New Orleans to reach more remote destinations

The bus in New Orleans is not as charming as streetcars, but it has more extensive routes. For example, you can reach the great Little Woods district only by car or bus. Operation hours are not stable! It is better to check the timetable on the RTA website.
