Preparing your trip to New Orleans: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

WWII Museum 1. Touring enthusiasts should better cruise the city on foot as the most important spots of tourist interest are located in close vicinity to each other. Ladies should not wear high heels as the quality of roads is not favorable for such footwear.
2. Tourists limited in time and desiring to observe the most significant landmarks should take a trip on local tram. Its route runs through the central streets of the city thus passing all the landmarks and sight. The cost of the trip will be about 1.3 USD.
3. The optimum means of city transport apart from the tram is a bus. During the weekdays it runs through the city almost 24/7. On weekends the buses run far less frequently. A ticket for a trip should be bought in specialized stalls or directly from a bus driver.
4. Tourists can rent a car in one of the rental centers. The cost of the car rent will totally depend on a chosen car brand. One will need passport, international driving license and a credit card with enough of limit to cover the rent.
5. Travelers should keep to simple safety precautions. One should not keep by oneself valuable things, substantial sums of money when setting off to the city exploration. At nighttime only central streets are safe for hiking meanwhile remote areas can be explored only with a guide. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Almost all shopping centers, super markets and boutiques accept international credit cards. Upscale restaurants, filling stations and hotels accept cashless transfers as well. Cash will be in use in small shops and boutiques located far from the city center, in budgetary restaurants and eateries and at the markets.
7. Drivers should take into account that during daytime the central road traffic is rather jammed and challenging in the city. Setting off to the important business meeting one should give oneself extra time. A tram will be a perfect alternative to a car in this case. Ferry is still a popular transportation means in the city. These cruise the river at 15 minute intervals.

Mardi Gras

From the series “Most Enchanting and Vibrant Festivals”
Mardi Gras has been celebrated in many European and American cities. But no one does it better than New Orleans.

Jazzland Theme Park

From the series “Deserted Places Causing the Feeling of Chill”
After destruction of the park there were several attempts to restore it, but a full reconstruction needed a very large sum, which was out of the city budget. The abandoned and destroyed amusement park owes its fame to the photographer Andrew Jason from United States. Two years after Hurricane Katrina, he went to New Orleans to shoot the city that suffered from the elements. Quite by chance, the photographer went to the amusement park, about which he knew nothing before his trip. The park impressed the photographer so much that he dedicated a separate photo shoot to it. … Read further
