In August 2005, thousands of visitors flocked to Louisiana to help rebuild the state after Hurricane Katrina’s devastating effects, and provided homes for those who lost everything in the hurricane. The Louisiana spirit prevailed and today, the state and its famous town New Orleans continue to thrive thanks to travellers on Louisiana flights.

Visitors booking flights to Louisiana head south for the fantastic food, outstanding music, and Louisiana hospitality, but there’s more to Louisiana than the French Quarter and Bourbon Street.

Getting around Louisiana

New Orleans has a great public bus system and the oldest streetcar service in the country, which has been designated a National Historic Monument. The buses are the cheapest way to get around, but they can be slow. Vintage St Charles streetcars can take you uptown while the Riverfront streetcar runs along the Mississippi River for two miles. Make sure you have exact change for the buses and streetcars. You can also get VisiTour passes that offer one to three days of unlimited rides on the streetcars and buses. The best way to get around at night is by hailing or calling for a cab. There are plenty of taxis to be found, and a metered ride won’t cost you much. If you want to take a tour of New Orleans, try hiring a cab to take you and up to four of your friends around the city. Head out on the water aboard the Canal Street Ferry for a great view of New Orleans’ skyline. The ferry is free for pedestrians and will take you out to suburban Algiers. It’s easy to drive in the city, but parking is another story.
