1. Cafe Du Monde is now located in City Park! It’s just as good as the French Quarter location without the line. Don’t forget it’s cash only – bring cash because their ATM fees are hefty.
2. Don’t try parking in the French quarter! Trust us. Park along Louis Armstrong park and walk in instead. It’s safe, even at night. Even if you Uber, have them drop you off at the edge of the quarter and walk in, your Uber fare and travel time will double if you try to drive through the quarter.
3. Get your groove on! Live stream ( or tune your rental car radio) to 90.7 WWOZ for a taste of all the music New Orleans has to offer.
5. There is ALWAYS an oyster happy hour happening somewhere, search around for 50 cent oysters!
