Why rent a car in New Orleans?
Gorgeous French colonial architecture, simmering jazz clubs and lip-smacking Cajun feasts are just a few reasons why so many people fall hard for New Orleans. And while the French Quarter is best explored on foot, you'll want a car to discover the rest of the city.
Where to go in New Orleans
Take a short drive north of the French Quarter to reach City Park, one of the nation's largest urban parks. Aside from pretty gardens, waterways and wildlife – including the odd alligator – you'll find the striking New Orleans Museum of Art. Head west of the French Quarter for a scenic drive through the lovely mansions of the Garden District and Uptown (particularly along St. Charles Ave). Eventually you'll reach Audubon Park, another much-loved green space with a zoo, lush pathways and a golf course. Just south of town, the Jean Lafitte Preserve is a great place to take a swamp tour. Drive back to the city for decadent dining and hot live music in Faubourg Marigny – it’s probably best to leave the car at the hotel.
Getting around New Orleans
Narrow one-way streets, errant cyclists and badly potholed roads are among the main challenges of driving in New Orleans. Street parking is fairly easy in most parts of the city apart from the French Quarter. Keep an eye out for pedestrians, and watch for streetcars – you'll have to cross the tracks when going over Canal St. or traversing St. Charles Ave.
New Orleans car rental locations
All the major rental agencies can be found at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY), as well as at locations around town. Wherever you pick up your car, you’ll get a great deal on your New Orleans car rental from Hotwire.
