New Orleans, Louisiana: The Big Easy

With your car rental, you can travel to and around New Orleans, the Birthplace of Jazz. A melting pot of European and Caribbean culture, the Mardi Gras City is ready to greet you with colorful nightlife, Creole cuisine, stunning architecture, and jazz parades.

Down in the Bayou

Get off the beaten path with a half-hour drive from the Superdome to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park. The legend of Jean Lafitte’s treasure lives on in the nature preserve where you can see a local alligator, learn about the Cajun way of life, or stand on the ground where brave men fought the Battle of New Orleans. Enjoy exotic plants and wildlife in their natural habitat and listen to tales about the pirates who hid in the swamps.

The French Quarter

No trip to New Orleans is complete without a visit to the famed French Quarter, known for its notorious nightlife, European-influenced architecture, and renowned cuisine. Enjoy a scenic drive along the levee before you park your car and take a walking tour past grand cathedrals, gigantic live oaks, and the haunting sound of brass horns from the performers on the park benches along Jackson Square. The smell of beignets and coffee wafts past, and the tales you’ve heard about the city come alive. A 10-minute drive via your car rental from the Central Business District takes you to the French Market for local art and treasures.

The Garden District

Just 25 minutes away from the French Quarter is an entirely different world: the peaceful, lush Garden District with its stately mansions, manicured gardens, and historic landmarks. Here, gigantic magnolia trees spread their shade and fragrant blossoms over the streets leading to centuries-old cemeteries where the famous and the unknown lie buried.
