  Street cars along St. Charles Ave.
by jadedmuse

If you have around two hours to spare, take a ride on a New Orleans street car. You can grab one at your hotel in the French Quarter area, and take the Uptown route which will lead you through the historical Garden District along one of the most beloved boulevards, St. Charles Avenue. Gracing this old street are beautiful antebellum mansions and homes for which this street is famous. Continue down St. Charles past Tulane University (my alma mater!) Loyola University, and past Audubon Park, until you reach Carrolton Avenue. Get off here and catch a return trolley back downtown. Fares run $1.00 per person, and exact change is required.

Directions: Can grab the trolley from just about anywhere - see my "Transportation Tips" for the street car route
