See the city skyline from the Mississippi River for free. Nothing fancy, but kids are sure to love the pelicans and photographers will love the sights on the way to historic Algiers.

After visiting City Park and taking the streetcar to the pier, we decided to take the ferry. Trip is about 10-15minutes, and is no more than other ferries I have been on. It is okay. The scenery of New Orleans from the other side is...More

Definitely worth a ride across the river for 2.00 each way (you need exact change) great picture opp Not a lot to do in Algiers but there is a great little English pub to stop by for a cold pint

This street is the main thoroughfare between the French Quarter and Warehouse District. Lots to see and do. A few sketchy places but appears generally safe during the daytime.

Its all the same stuff you have back home with the exception of the riverboats outside. If you happen by in the morning b4 the first cruise, the calliope playing at 200db will make you want to jump in the river....Skip.

Went across to Algiers the ferry was fine there and back but was really disappointed. There was nothing over there and because we were to early there was no coffee shops open so we got back on the next ferry back to the mainland.

We had our dog along and I had read on a pet website that he could ride the ferry. They had no signs saying dogs had to walk down the car ramp. The attendant took time from her cell phone call to jump up and...More

It's not worth the money unless you absolutely need to get across the river. It's a short ride and there's not much to do in Algiers Point. $4 is a lot for a nonessential trip. The staff on the boat were kind of rude. The...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
