The last several trips to NO we have flown in and taken a taxi to FQ. We walk everywhere and rent bikes. This time to save money we are driving in and bringing our own bikes. We are staying at the French Market Inn 12/28 thru 1/3 and got a great rate. I know they will valet our car, but I think it is like $35 a day so I am sure I can do better. I have been surfing around and reading the forum, but would like your recommendation please.
