NAV­I­GATE

Where New Orleans - - CONTENTS -

Trans­porta­tion, neigh­bor­hoods and nearby des­ti­na­tions. Plus the new Ram­part street­car line.

It’s one of New Or­leans’ big­gest at­trac­tions, and—at $1.25 a ride—one of its cheap­est. The Cres­cent City’s sig­na­ture street­cars (p. 50) are a must-do for vis­i­tors look­ing to get off the beaten French Quar­ter path and ex­plore other parts of the city. In op­er­a­tion since 1835, the St. Charles line of­fers an ideal van­tage for view­ing Up­town’s or­nate homes and gi­ant oaks. The Canal line trav­els the street’s full length, with an off­shoot to scenic City Park, while the River­front line af­fords river views and ac­cess to the lower Quar­ter. The Loy­ola line makes get­ting to the Mercedes-Benz Su­per­dome su­per-easy, and con­nects with the new Ram­part/St. Claude line (shown), which cov­ers the up­per Quar­ter cor­ri­dor from Union Pas­sen­ger Terminal to Elysian Fields. All aboard!
