So, where should you take your New Orleans car rental? We’ve got a few ideas that will keep you steeped in the city’s culture and thoroughly entertained.
- The French Quarter. It’s the oldest and most famous neighborhood in the city and a great place to start your adventure. So park your rental car along New Orleans’ quieter North Rampart Street and walk all 78 blocks of this striking historic area. Along the way you can stop at Café du Monde for beignets and café au lait, indulge in a pint at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop on Bourbon Street, gaze upon the legendary ironwork at the corner of Royal & St. Peter streets and enjoy some of the best people watching you’ll ever find.
- Snug Harbor. Once called the “classiest jazz club in New Orleans” by The New York Times, this gem of a club is located away from the hustle and bustle of The French Quarter is arguably one of the most important venues in regional jazz.
- NOAD (New Orleans Arts District). Filled with world-class art galleries, museums and many fine restaurants, this once-abandoned area of town is brimming with culture, nightlife and the indomitable spirit of the city.
