New Orleans travel tips

1) Turn to less popular districts in New Orleans to see more casual life

Head to New Orleans' Mid-City that tourists often overlook. Here you will see a more relaxed and casual living in the city. Visit the New Orleans Museum of Art or City Park. Another benefit here is lower restaurant prices.

2) Pay tribute to Andrew Jackson, the man thanks to whom we know New Orleans as it is

Walking around Jackson Square in New Orleans, mind it is named after Andrew Jackson. The street pays homage to this Battle of New Orleans hero. Pay attention to the fascinating dating back over 400 years St. Louis Cathedral in the centre of the square. A cup of coffee from Cafe Du Monde French Market will make your walk better.

3) Use "water taxis" to get to Algiers in New Orleans

For $2 per ride, you may take the RTA Ferries to travel to Algiers Point in New Orleans. This quiet area on the west bank of the Mississippi River has fantastic views of Jackson Square Park and the French Quarter. And the trip by "water taxis" is a great experience itself.
