First things first—you may like walking, but you have zero intention of hitchhiking all over Louisiana, right? Wotif’s car hire options in New Orleans ensure smooth travel in “The Big Easy,” as well as the rest of Louisiana, should you want to embark on a road trip.
Start your visit in the French Quarter, often considered the historic centre of the city, where you'll find recognisable New Orleans-style architecture with French and Spanish influences. After a visit to the quarter, you should set aside time for some museum marvels and perhaps a brief reprieve from the humidity. New Orleans has several great museums, including the National World War II Museum and the New Orleans Museum of Art. If you'd rather spend your time outside, check out the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, where you can learn about bugs in their natural habitat.
Not into creepy-crawlies? There's no shortage of places to shop in New Orleans, especially if you're hunting for souvenirs to haul back to your crew. You'll find that the streets of the French Quarter are lined with themed shops, and you won't be able to resist taking a little piece home with you. Another great shopping district in the city is Magazine Street, which has clothing, antique and furniture stores. Oh, and probably magazines…we think.
Let's face it, New Orleans holidays are mostly meant for eating and drinking—the truth never felt so good. Start by sampling classic local delights around the French Quarter, where you can indulge in famous dishes like beignets, crawfish etouffee, fried gator and muffulettas. You could then head over to the Garden District to satiate the refined side of your palate (yes, we know you have one) with more upscale Creole cuisine.
Fat Tuesday or not, be ready to stay out late in New Orleans, as people spend all night eating, drinking, dancing and having fun. To hear some of the world's best jazz musicians perform live, head over to Frenchmen Street, the city's historic music district, and bust out those dance moves!
Finally, no trip is complete without a Sazerac and a strut down Bourbon Street. This is where you'll find the famous New Orleans party scene, and who knows, you may even catch a few beads!

Convenient location for exploring Bourbon Street. The Jazz Playhouse makes quite the statement and is worth spending some time at. Would be lovely if they had an in room dining menu for added convenience
Location was great for us. The style and character of the building was great, very classy however, let down by small things. The tv remote only controlled the channels. Power and volume etc needed to be done from the back of the screen. There was a tangled mess of cables hanging from the tv that ...
