The mahogany seats, brass fittings, and exposed ceiling light bulbs is what you will experience when you board one of the oldest continuously operating streetcar in the world. For more than 150 years, the streetcar symbolizes the charm and romance of the City of New Orleans.
I boarded the street car at the very end of St. Charles St. These streetcars pass through the Central Business District which is the oldest and most majestic section of uptown New Orleans. You will see dozens of antebellum mansions, historic monuments, Loyola and Tulane universities, the sweeping grounds of the Zoological Gardens, shopping centers, fine restaurants, and hotels.
Jump off the streetcar and head into French Quarters and explore the landscape for hours. The French Market, museums, shops, cemetaries, etc... You might be pleasantly surprised by all the free outdoors concerts and art exhibits available.
Who doesn't go to New Orleans for the food. Café du Monde is one of the many popular New Orleans food destination specializing in beignets with powdered sugar.
There are so many great place to dine. You will be able to any of the traditional dishes like, Gumbo, Crawfish Étouffée, Muffulettas, Jambalaya, and Red Beans and Rice just about at any restaurant or venue. I would have had more pictures but for some reason my food would disappear quickly.
