Ride a Streetcar

New Orleans Street Car

You may not get to ride on ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’, but the city’s public transportation system (RTA) still includes these historic rattling cars that take you on a relaxing and scenic ride along boulevards shaded by massive oak trees.  With three lines, (St Charles Avenue, Canal Street and Riverfront),  66 cars and 13 miles of track, the streetcars will get you to most of the city’s attractions; from the riverfront and the French Quarter, to the CBD, the Garden District, and Audobon Park.  A ride on a New Orleans streetcar is a great way to tour the city.
