One of a few things in NOLA that are free . It was beautiful at night to ride across the Mississippi , the lights from the city are beautiful. its only a couple of minutes to cross over , but it was beautiful !

Just for heck, take the free ferry across the Mississippi to Algiers. You get a nice skyline view of New Orleans and it only takes 5 minutes to get across. Just exit the ferry and get back in line to make the trip back.

As many others have pointed out, its free...so really can't complain too much about it. A very quick spacios ferry ride over to Algiers Point...which seems to be a residential spot. There is a nice walking path to both sides of the ferry terminal, but not much else to do. You can get some very nice skyline pictures though

Since we all have seen the movie Deja Vu with Denzel Washington, I thought it would be fun to get on the ferry and experience the fact that they shot a lot of the movie in this place. The first time we went in our car, which costs us a $1. The trip back we walked on.. It was nice. It was so hot out, so when we boarded we stayed upstairs and cooled off in the AC. When the ferry started moving, we went down and snapped some pics on the lower level. The kids enjoyed it and so did my husband and I. Definitely a must do!

Loved the ferry service. It was so convenient to park the car and ride the ferry into New Orleans. Walk ons are free and to take your car over is just $1!
