Whether you are here as a tourist or blowing off some steam after a long trip on board one of the many freighters that dock here, almost everyone finds themselves sooner of later in the French Quarter.
This historic district has it all, whether or not you are willing to admit it when you get home. From the late night partying on Bourbon Street to the casinos to Mardi Gras, this is the place to be.
One of the few places in New Orleans above sea level, the area was protected from much of the damage from Katrina and business is good. People are flocking in to find what has made New Orleans one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
Whether it's the fried chicken at Willy May's, or a quick trip on board the Cajun Queen paddlewheel boat, there's something for everyone here.
Accommodations of all levels are available as well. From bed and breakfasts to major hotels, there are rooms available. With conventions returning, you should check bookings in advance for reservations, of course. Though deals may be obtained through Priceline if there are cheapter rooms available due to lulls or off-peak timing.
Of course during Mardi Gras, things get a little busier, or even during larger conventions. So plan your trip accordingly and enjoy your time here in the Big Easy.
If you plan well enough ahead, you can also obtain private entertainment for your group such as French Quarter murder mystery dinners or improv comedy.
Remember, though, parking may be difficult and costly. It may be less expensive to use public transportation, like the street cars, or cabs as opposed to renting your own cars. Ask your hotel for information about airport shuttles as well as transportation that they may provide to the cruises. As for events, a private French Quarter murder mystery dinner would come to you, preventing you from having to deal with parking or transportation.
