If you don't ask, how are you supposed to know? While planning your New Orleans travel, ask us, we will help when we can. Here is a list of what we hear most often:
What is the weather this time of year?
What are Transportation Options in New Orleans?
There are taxis available on New Orleans' streets and at major hotels. The streetcar and bus lines are operated by RTA, and cost $1.25, exact change required.
Airport Shuttle, Inc. is the official ground transportation for Armstrong International Airport, with service to and from New Orleans' hotels and other designated locations.
Is New Orleans a Safe City?
Generally speaking, if you stay in central areas, New Orleans is a reasonably safe place. Like any big city, you have to keep your eyes open. New Orleans attracts nearly eight million visitors per year. Crime that does occur is a very small percentage of that number. New Orleans' popular tourist areas are among the most safe and walkable places for visitors of any city in America.
Are there really Sex Clubs on Bourbon Street?
No. Despite what is promised or advertised, below-the-waist nudity is prohibited in New Orleans. There are topless clubs on Bourbon Street. Also, outdoor exposure is a crime, relaxed only somewhat during Mardi Gras.
Is New Orleans Really Below Sea Level?
Yes. New Orleans is protected by a levee system, and parts of the city are as much as 11 feet below sea level. The French Quarter along the river sits atop the highest ground in the area, that is not below sea level.
How close is downtown to the French Quarter?
New Orleans’ downtown (or CBD, Central Business District) is immediately adjacent to the French Quarter. Canal Street is a common boundary between the two. As you approach the Mississippi River on Canal Street, tourist attractions, including the Aquarium, Harrah’s Casino, and the Riverwalk, stretch between the two.
