Maps

New Orleans is home to one of the world's busiest ports, yet the city is remarkably compact and easy to navigate. Visitors are always pleasantly surprised to learn that many of the city's attractions, accommodations and event venues are within walking distance of each other; in fact, "hoofing it" (either walking or hopping into a mule-drawn carriage) is a favorite means of transportation in the Crescent City.

But, if you prefer wheels to legs, New Orleans has a very accessible and reasonably priced public transportation system, too. It only costs $1.25 to take an RTA bus or one of the city's famed streetcars, which travel the Riverfront and Canal Street. Where else can you actually ride on a historic landmark?

Of course, as one of the world's top convention and meeting destinations, New Orleans also has a range of national car rental agencies as well as taxi and limousine services. A number of the city's hotels and attractions offer free shuttle services, and there are a great variety of guided tours throughout the city and its neighborhoods.

"By land or by sea," getting where you are going in New Orleans is half the fun. Riverboats go rollin' on the river, just like they've done for more than a century. If street traffic is tight, you can always take the ferry across the river to historic Algiers Point.

Even the Louis Armstrong International Airport is convenient; just 15 miles from the Central Business District and French Quarter, it is a quick ride away, whether you go by bus, shuttle, taxi or limousine. If you come by Greyhound Bus or AMTRAK train, Union Terminal is centrally located and served by RTA buses, taxis and limos.
