We (myself, DH, 9yo DD & 5yo DS) will be down at the end of March(first time). We are renting a car when we get there because we are going to a family wedding in Houma. After the wedding we are heading into NO for a couple days. All the books I have read (pre-Katrina) have said that driving and parking in the FQ is a pain and don't bother if you are staying around that area. Is that still valid info? Should we return the rental and rely on taxis for our time in NO? We plan on staying somewhere (quieter)in the FQ, and don't want driving,parking & finding our way around to be a headache!!
