I recommend trying the streetcars once. They are a great inexpensive way to see the city. But be aware that they don't really run on a regular schedule no matter what the RTA says, so don't ride if you need to be somewhere on time. And check in advance; if there's maintenance or a Krewe parade, they don't run at all.
