When it’s time to escape from the crowded streets of New Jersey, plan your dream vacation to New Orleans. While you can still experience the city life, there is also much more to explore in The Big Easy, so be sure to book a rental car so you’re not restricted.
New Orleans has an aura that screams history and purpose. From the Napoleon House, to Bourbon Street, all the way over to the architecture in the Garden District, New Orleans has plenty to admire.
The French Quarter offers plenty to do with vampire and ghost tours, carriage guided tours, walking architecture tours, and even swamp boat tours. If you plan on taking tours of the plantation homes or swamp lands, a rental car from the airport is ideal. Tours charge extra if you require a pick up and drop off service.
Magazine Street is the perfect place to look for small shops, and themed restaurants like the Mexican inspired Arana. Art galleries and other locally owned shops line the street from Canal Street, all the way to the Audubon Zoo. Spend your afternoons exploring the local culture before visiting Bird Island, or the Audubon Gold Course.
The flight from Newark Liberty Airport (EWR) to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) will take around three hours. Steamboat Natchez is the last one still cruising the Mississippi, and their daily cruises inspire the history lover in all of us.
