The Big Easy is divided into 13 districts, such as the French Quarter and Garden District, with 72 neighborhoods spread out over these districts. New Orleans does have bus service throughout the city, but it can be overcrowded and confusing, so you’ll likely want your own car. At the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY), renting a car will save you the trouble of finding a ride downtown.
In New Orleans' French Quarter, there are a variety of bars, restaurants and local shops to be explored. Here, the drink of choice is a Hurricane and beignets are the must-have afternoon snack. If you have missed this year's festivities, Mardi Gras World allows you the chance to explore the history of the celebration and view floats from past parades.
The Louisiana Children’s Museum has plenty of interactive displays, and an entire wing devoted to the young at heart. At the Confederate Memorial Hall, browse the displays of artifacts, left over from the Civil War and the state's time as part of the Confederate States of America.
You can expect to fly for a little more than three hours when you leave the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) for a trip to New Orleans International Airport (MSY).
