To me, the best part of my New Orleans trips was riding the Charles
Street trolleys. There are several downtown boarding locations
adjacent to Canal Street.
Also, the Canal Street line is being reactivated out to Cemeteries.
New trolleys, similar in style to the existing ones, are being
constructed. Don't know if it is still there, but an ulta-sleek
Czech trolley was running up and down the Canal Street line and onto
the Riverside line when I was last there 18 months ago.
And you *must* go to Cafe Du Monde for coffee and beignets. Wicked
Otherwise, the Bourbon Street area is grossly overrated, particularly
at night. Unless you don't mind drunks and unintentional 'business
meetings' with representatives from Our Lady of the Evening, that is.
