We got on the streetcar on Canal Street and took a ride to the Garden District. What a perfect way to experience the area, view the homes and see the locals. There are many stops along the way and people coming and going. If you have a few hours, just relax and enjoy the ride. If you're in a hurry,... More

A great way to get around the city! $3 for a day pass is very reasonable and can be used on all 4 streetcar lines AND the RTA buses!

For a good way to get up and down Canal Street or along the river, the street car is fun and inexpensive. They run pretty regular, thought they do get crowded at certain times of the day, rush hour!
