The Portland International (PDX) airport is approximately 12 miles from downtown Portland.

From the east take I-84 and from the west take Highway 26. When traveling to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) flights usually last for little over four-and-a-half hours. The destination airport is about 11 miles from downtown New Orleans, which can be reached via taxicabs, airport shuttles or the Airport-Downtown Express.
Soak in the atmosphere of Jackson Square, which is often referred to as the heart and soul of the French Quarter. Don't neglect a visit to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, or the Louisiana State Museum at the Cabildo. A visit to above ground cemeteries such as Lafayette Cemetery and St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 are also recommended. For a bit more excitement, experience the Bourbon Street nightlife in the historic French Quarter.
Thanks to the humid climate of New Orleans, it is advisable to pack breathable fabrics and lightweight clothing. It rains a lot here too, so packing a waterproof jacket or umbrella is a must. Bourbon Street hotels tend to be noisy and expensive, so it is often better to opt for the Arts District, or Garden District when booking a hotel.
